Folding Bike as a It's Own Lock?

I love bikes and love folding bikes most of all.  So I was fascinated by this idea, pointed out to me by Keswick Cycle.  Essentially, a bicycle engineer has designed a folding bike that wraps around a pole or bike rack, and allows you to secure it with a minimal locking mechanism.  Then, when you're ready to go, you use a ratchet to lock it back into place for secure riding.

Brilliant!  If I were a bike lock company, I'd buy the design today either to patent it and build it, or to get it off the market ASAP.
