Noke is a Bluetooth padlock that pairs with your iPhone and lets you easily share access to your possessions. The padlock by FŪZ Designs was just successfully funded on Kickstarter.
Once you've downloaded their iOS or Android app, Noke automatically finds and pairs to your Bluetooth 4.0 enabled smartphone. You can name your Noke and even give it a photo if you like. That's it.
To unlock Noke, simply press the shank. Noke wakes up and searches for your phone or a shared phone. If the phone is within 10 feet, Noke will instantly unlock so you can be on your way. No need to launch an app or remove your phone from your pocket or purse.
Noke can also be outfitted with a custom chain and bike mount that lets you securely attach it to your seat post.
In case you forget your phone or your battery dies, Noke lets you create a custom access code that can be used to unlock the padlock. To enter the code you press down the shackle.
When it's time to replace your Noke's battery, you will receive a notification through the app. To replace the battery, you just unlock Noke and twist off the back cover. The battery can also be replaced while the Noke is locked by inserting a small pin.
The padlock has already surpassed its $100,000 goal in just a day. You can pledge $59 to get one of the first ones at the link below.
