Bicycle parking gadget

If the bicycle parking area is too large, people will forget where they left their bike.

Like at the Velo Parking at Basel SBB.

This evening a young woman was looking for her bicycle. A couple of days ago a young man was wandering up and down the aisles in search of his bike.

And the same has happened to me as well. I was extremely tired and couldn’t remember in which aisle I had left my bike.

In almost all cases, people grab their cell phone and call someone.

Wouldn’t it be cool if you could call your bike and it would identify itself by ringing out loud or flashing a light?

Which reminds me of another cool presentation I saw at Lift 11:
