DataDots Make Theft for Parts Utterly Impossible

All new Aussie Yamaha motorcycles to come with free DataDot theft protection - gizmag Article

DataDots are a very cool idea wherein thousands or millions of microscopic dots, containing a website and code to identify the rightful owner, are sprayed on mechanical parts.

What they do is make it unfeasible to just scrap off the identifying markings, as in the old days where there'd be one single point of identification.

Yamaha Australia is putting DataDots into use on their motorcycles. This effectively means that stealing a new Yamaha in Australia is no longer a good idea since every single part of the bike is easily identifiable.

Well done, Yamaha. When can I get this on my motorcycle, car, computer and everything else?
