Do you remember when getting into your car and actually going somewhere required two separate keys? Are we the only ones that remember a time when keyless entry for cars didn’t exist? People are going to be asking themselves similar questions in a few years once everyone is using keyless entry systems for their bike U-locks, too. Bitlock is the first that we’ve seen. Using bluetooth, Bitlock senses proximity of your device to the lock and automatically locks or unlocks when you’re within, or out of, a three foot radius. That alone would make the project worth supporting, but the Bitlock app also records the bike location, maps your ride, calories burned and how much CO2 you saved. This could very well be the best bike lock ever.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
