Bike lock pole-climbs with the bike, hopefully keeps thieves at bay

Lock or no lock, bikes are easy target for thieves. This lock, with its skateboard wheels could be a deterrent to would-be thieves. The user needs to wrap the lock around a pole, and engage it; the lock’s metal frame, skateboard wheels and the electric motor then take over the job. As soon as the remote control is pushed, the lock hoists the bike up a pole, taking it out of the reach of potential wrongdoers. Clearly, it isn’t a pragmatic solution, but a creative one and worth watching anyway.
