Goal: to create a parking rack for bicycles

Conception: The project uses a very simple principle of magnets. You park your bike and with a special chip-key switch on the “magnetic field”. You go away and take this chip with you (by putting it on the hand like a bracelet).  So, the rack is locked. “MACNETIC LOCK” consists of 2 unmovable parts and 4 magnetic pivots (if you are a thief, you must break 4! pivots, this is not so easy). These pivots lock the wheel, the rack and the chain!
