Where's my bike?

Hey people,
Has it ever happened to you, you parked your bike, secured it very tightly with a good chain, and yet when you return you find out that your bike has been stolen...I've had it happen to myself a few times now and I can tell you it feels horrible... 
But for just these occasions there's this very cool gadget... It's a very cool bicycle light...



And one with a build in gps that is... What is the purpose of such a device? Well it continuously sends gps signals, which can be tracked through the internet... Are you getting where I'm going with this? As soon as one of those thieves decides to take your bike, you can simply ask for it's position using the gps light tracker... Then just give the position to the police, and you can reclaim your bike... That is if they don't decide to remove the light, but then again, why would they? If they have gone far enough to steal your bike, why would they leave the lights behind?
As a bonus, you can use it to find your bike in case when you go out for a drink at night, you forgot where you parked your bike, for some unknown reason...
Anyway, it's handy if you ask me...
The price? It isn't cheat, that's what I'll tell you, they can run up to 200$ and they have to be shipped from the UK... but yeah, that's somewhat worth it, because it sure beats having to buy a new bike...
Interested? You can find the website here :)

What do you think? Amazing, or too expensive? Let me know in the comments :)

See you later, when I tell you about something else!

  9. Pretty cool! A lot more advanced than my solution - ride a total beater bike, or at least give it enough scratches and dirt to make it look rough. Even on days when I forgot my chain, it hasn't gotten away (*knock on wood*)!

  10. I've heard of something similar before, but, instead of being a light, it's a chip which you place into the seat tube and does not come out.
