new bike lock

http://www.mikelambourn.com/smartlock.html

SmartLock:

This bike lock deters the opportunist thief by making the abuser's experience as unpleasant as possible without having a detrimental effect on the user.

SmartLock is a cable lock that has cores of compressed air and liquid running through its body. If cut, the liquids spray out over the perpetrator, his tools, the bike and the scene of the crime. A bike that has been stolen will be covered in coloured dye (the dye renders the bike undesirable and therefore unsellable) as well as transluscent Smartwater - an invisible forensic property marking liquid.

The lock is lightweight but offers additional protection. The lock barrel and lever components are surrounded by a hardened steel casing which is in turn encased in a Dupont Hytrel moulding. Itıs quick and easy to use and allows the cyclist to lock both wheels and the frame. If breached, the dye as well as smartwater markings help the authorities identify your bike, and can help link the thief to the crime . The dye may wash off but the effects of invisbile smartwater lingers on perpetrators and can be detected by ultra violet scanners used by the police. Both liquids also stain the ground identifying areas vulnerable to theft

sounds a bit over-the-top to me... so if somebody cuts it - paint damages the bike? Then if they don't sell it... it's still a big claim...

I'm not sure about permanently marking the ground either... seems kind of odd...

Sounds like a good idea. Kinda like the dye packs banks use on bags of money.
I'm guessing they thought of the problems with permanant damage to the paint. If not it would make you think twice, I mean, you get your bike back but you gotta pay for a paint job?
Maybe they should just make it hard to clean off but not permanant.
