Australian designers Tosika Maluma and Carson Tully have created a wearable bicycle lock with built-in LED lights designed to boost cyclist's safety.

Billed as a world’s first, the LED-laden VividLock can be worn across the body as a safetystrip to alert drivers to the cyclist’s presence atnight. The padded, lightweight strip is also adornedwith a high visibility reflective band.

What makesthe Vivid Lock stand out is its 60 LED lights – white in the front and red inthe back – which feature nine adjustable modes, flash speeds and power conservation options.The light modes are regulated by a waterproof mini controller that is attachedto the LED strip.

The minicontroller requires two AA batteries that provide over 70 hours battery life onsteady light mode.

On the security side, it features a customizable 4digit combination lock with two 6 mm fiber core steel cables integrated into thepadded strap to prevent theft or bolt cutter attack.

The VividLock is made from durable, water resistant 1000D nylon, clear PVC and the LED strips are waterproof, with plans for four different color options.

Thedesigners are relying on a Kickstarter campaign to fund the release of theVivid Lock and if all goes to plan, intend to have the product manufactured and shipped to customersby January 2016. Pledges start at US$72.

It looks like an expensive lock butt.....still it is sort of a nice light system, You would be able to find where you left your bike locked up, for around 70 hours that is,Lock up your steed set the GPS locator and enter the mall then if you couldn't remember what parking lot you parked in you would be able to see your locking strip flashing after your GPS got you close!!
