Hit Eject

Behold the anti-theft ejector seat, a feature included on the 'Bond bike' concept bike that bicycle insurer Environmental Transport Association brought to Cycle Show 2010 in London:

Powered by compressed air, the saddle shoots two meters skyward if not first disarmed by its owner. 

Put the two-second segment on loop and allow yourself to imagine legions of would-be bike thieves limping off with sore bums or bruised foreheads. (I'm unclear on what exactly triggers the ejection and am thus unsure of which body parts would likely suffer damage.)

See this site for footage of the bike's other 007-style gadgetry.
