Are you worried about your kids (or anyone) stealing from the cookie jar when you’re not looking? Well, thanks to the new Kitchen Safe, available at Kickstarter, that is no longer an issue to stress about. The Kitchen Safe is the world’s first time-lock container for food, gadgets, toys, and other items you want, but know you shouldn’t have! The clever creation can prevent kids from sneaking treats when parents aren’t around or prevent adults from snacking on goodies that won't help them achieve their health goals.
CoolThings.com celebrates this invention, calling it "a gadget intent on holding you to your saner decisions." Although it of course takes willpower to actually place "restricted" items in the safe, it could be a great tool for preventing overeating in both children and adults alike.
To use the safe, simply place an item inside, close the lid, and set the timer. Once the timer is set and the button is pressed, you’re locked out. The safe cannot be opened until the timer reaches zero. Although the safe is only currently available online (about $75 for 3 safes), the company’s goal is to make it available in stores as soon as possible. Try out this potentially revolutionary product that will back you up when your willpower fails!
