The “Nok?” U-lock is the first Bluetooth-enabled bike lock. The remote-sensing device, syncs with your phone, so when you push a button on the crossbar it senses your presence and unlocks. If you forget or lose your phone, there’s a way to open the lock by pressing a customized series of short and long touches, sort of like Morse code. The app also allows you to set up friends as designated users of the lock (or as banned users if they become enemies). The Nok? is so smart it will let users know its location via phone. It also gets angry at potential thieves: An accelerometer senses when it’s jostled for more than three seconds, and then activates a “shrieking alarm” that will send a thief running and get the attention of anyone within about 50 meters.
