OCTOPUS / bicycle light-lock

OCTOPUS
OCTOPUS

Recently lots of bicycles are stolen easily and frequently, and cyclists using complex multi-locks to keep it safely. However it is hard to reassure from thieves. Hence, the design aims to resolve these problems.
The OCTOPUS is a solar charging bicycle light with dual locks. The LED lights are recharged by the solar penal on the body. And cable locks on both sides lock the front and rear wheels at the same time. The cables automatically rewind when a user unlocks it, preventing the cables tangle-free. When one of cable is cut by a thief, blinking lights and alarm sound throw the thief out while the another cable keeps the bicycle safely.
