This. For the cost of this project on the crowdfunding site, maybe that money should go towards a fund to get bike lockers placed in useful places. The biggest pushback I see about bike lockers, next to the implementation cost, is concern about people putting stuff they shouldn't in them. However, between having lockers like the ProPark View-Thru (which allow visual inspections) or registering people before handing them a key, this becomes a non-issue, about the same risk of people bringing the same stuff into the office.
It really doesn't take that much to make a place in a building for bikes for all but the smallest companies. A room with a camera or two, card access, a row of lockers so people could put their helmet and a change of clothes, and a row of bike racks is definitely good enough. Bonus points if there are showers available.
Part of the problem in the US is that European bike shelters tend not to work here, as they tend to be a target of vandalism. An automatic bike lift would be destroyed in almost no time flat. So, even though bike lockers take up a lot of space, they are a low common denominator, relatively tough to break in, and provide decent security, especially for overnight or all day use.
To heck with booby traps. If you want something that actually will add security, spend the money to start (or promote an existing) advocacy group to get lockers places in more places. This would be real progress, and allow for far better security, as opposed to gimmicks .
: There are tons of bike lock designs out there, be it those that use Bluetooth apps, traveling keys, magnetic locks, but the real issue isn't the U-lock, it is putting the bike inside of a secure container so no part of the bike is accessible to a thief.
