Set it and forget it: The Smart Cube makes anything a safe

editors-choice-300x96The makers of traditional and the more modern versions of safes seem to only understand passports, money, and guns are the only worthwhile things that need protecting. In today’s home, though, things like medicine, cleaning liquids and alcohol should be safely stored away because thieves aren’t the only curious types — babies, teenagers, and even roommates can give them a run for their money.

What’s needed is a solution that’s far more versatile, a solution that can transform any enclosed space into a protected space. The Smart Cube is that solution. It works by being attached to the inside of a drawer, a medicine cabinet, a guitar case — pretty much anything — with strong 3M tape that can withstand up to 100 pounds of force. It communicates through Bluetooth to its companion iOS/Android app so that its built-in proximity sensor automatically locks and relocks when the main Smart Cube user comes near.
