Canada-based OckCorp is running a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstater to raise enough money for the production of TEO, the Bluetooth padlock. While it looks like the idea is not exactly new, this particular one is close to production, as the guys are halfway to their goal, with almost a month remaining.
TEO is a keyless padlock which can be opened and closed with your smartphone, via Bluetooth nearfield communication.

And since mobile smartphones are to be found in pretty much everyone's pocket, you can imagine how many keys you'll be leaving at home, instead of carying them in your pockets.

The very cool thing about TEO is that the power user can grant full or limited access to each TEO padlock to others, with limitations being easy to set on time, number of openings, location and more. And full monitoring of all padlocks and access types are also included in the package, even battery charging levels.

TEO uses a Bluetooth Low Energy chipset, and communication is in full compliance with existing standards. And a TEO fob is currently being developed to assist you in case the batteries go dead. No battery life is specified for the TEO locks, but it should be a long time before needing recharging.

This brings us riders one step closer to safer motorcycles and bicycles, as the keyless padlock technology could be passed from the chains to the bike's very ignition.
