LINKA Auto-Unlocking Smart Bike Lock - Kickstarter Projects You Need To Check Out

Earlier in the week we looked at a small, relatively simple accessory. Today, let's look at something a bit more complex

For those of us who live in New York (or any metropolitan area where traffic is insane), a bike is the only sane form of transportation.

Bike theft has got to rank up there with our biggest concerns as commuters. 

As a result, the guys from Velasso designed something amazing to solve those concerns.

LINKA : World's First Auto-Unlocking Smart Bike Lock

How is LINKA unique? They discovered that 85% of bikes that are stolen are ridden away inconspicuously. By focusing mainly on immobilizing the wheel and locking it to the frame, one can seriously reduce the risk of a bike getting stolen, as it become a lot more suspicious to carry an alarming bike!

At it’s core, LINKA is a powerful bike lock mounted to your frame, so it’s always ready. To lock it, simply tap the button and you’ll be recognized securely through your phone. A 9mm hardened square steel ring automatically slides into place making your bike impossible to ride away.

As of writing the LINKA has 24 days left to go to achieve funding, and they’ve almost doubled their goal, with $40,528 out of their initial $25,000 goal raised!

Pre-orders start at pledges of $99 or more.

Estimated delivery date: December 2015

The inCharge Bolt - Kickstarter Projects That You Need To Check Out

Another week brings more amazing Kickstarter projects that you don't want to miss.

We have a fascination for all things Apple, so it only makes sense that we'd love a product like the inCharge bolt.

Without any further ado, let's get to it.

inCharge Bolt - The Smallest Keyring Cable On Steroids!

The inCharge Bolt is the smallest keyring cable in the world, charging at up to twice the speed of a standard cable.

Thanks to a magnetic closure, it attaches onto your keys, making it impossible to forget it at home. It allows you to charge your smartphone (or any lightning/microUSB device really), pretty much anywhere. It is important to note that the inCharge Bolt is engineered to be a charge-only cable and not to transfer data (the same founders also created the inCharge).

As of writing the inCharge Bolt has 32 days left to go to achieve funding and they’ve more than doubled their goal, with £41,025 out of their initial £20,000 goal raised.

With pre-orders to be had for £7 - this is definitely a project to keep an eye on!

Estimated delivery date: July 2015

3 Apple Watch Kickstarter Projects To Back Today

With the long-awaited launch of the Apple Watch, the funding window for first wave Kickstarter projects is winding down. The most popular accessory category (so far) appears to be docks designed to charge your iPhone as well as your Apple Watch.

Let's take a look at 3 projects that you still have time to help achieve funding.

 

Duet iPhone and Apple Watch Dock

The Duet Dock is a dock designed for both your Apple Watch and iPhone (from the iPhone 5 up to the iPhone 6 Plus). 

The philosophy behind the project is the idea of simplicity - why have unruly, messy cables complicate your charging routine? 

The Duet Dock is machined from a solid block of aluminum, so it has the same premium feel as your Apple devices.

 

As of writing the Duet Dock has 30 days left to go to achieve funding, with $18,296 out of their $25,000 goal raised.

Pre-orders can still be had for $79 (it will retail for $99) - this is definitely a project to keep an eye on.

Estimated delivery date: August 2015
