    My Side Project - A Smart Bike Alarm.

    I love cycling around San Francisco, but I’m blown away by how rampant bike theft is here. I decided to do something about it, and I want to share what I’ve been working on.

    We call it NoJack, and it’s a smart bike theft deterrent. Attach NoJack to your bike and it connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth, so it knows when you’re parking your bike, and automatically arms itself. If it detects intentional tampering, NoJack screams 120 decibels of bloody murder, the wannabe thief flees, and your ride is secure! 

    We’re getting close to launching on KickStarter and need support to make it a success. If you’re interested, there’s more info and fun stuff over at www.nojack.bike
