Design site Core77 regularly runs "One Hour Design Challenge" competitions; I would love to see how many of these ideas were thought up and drawn in an hour. The winner in their latest, to design a better bike lock, is very clever. I use a heavy chain that weighs more than my bike and don't think that cable would stop a dedicated thief, but perhaps there are still parts of the world where this would work, or some new superstrength cable that would foil the boltcutter.
