Perhaps you like to watch too much TV, eat insane amounts of candy or would like to control the amount of cigarettes you get per day.
If you are human, you know how hard it is to keep a strict diet of whatever you want to control. Let me present you kSafe, this will become the best buddy of anyone who wants to achieve their goals.
kSafe is a lockable recipient that will open only after you have achieved personal goals. It comes with an app to set your objectives, while it tracks and saves all the records so that your progress can be measured.
The best part? there are no overrides. There is no way you can open one of these after locked, unless you hit it with a hammer of course. Who in its righteous mind would like to destroy a new $79 jar?
The background of this invention comes from academic research that includes MIT, Harvard and Yale University. Self control has been explained on TED talks too.
“Pursuing short-term goals and concrete rewards is way more motivating”
Their first version “Kitchen Safe” got lots of attention, including investment from GoPro’s CEO on Shark Tank TV show. They have improved the product a lot since that Shark Tank episode and now they are seeking funding through kickstarter for their new smart kSafe.
How does kSafe work?
kSafe works in 3 simple steps.
- Place what ever you think as temptation inside kSafe. Evening snacker? Just put all of those chocolates and chips in.
- Set the type of goal you want to achieve on the app and lock kSafe. They have time goals, location goals and activity goals to fit all of your needs.
- Finally it is up to you to achieve your goal. Only after completion kSafe will open.
This device is great for any type of person, from students and parents to food or fitness junkies.
They are running a crowdfunding campaign at this moment and got 43 days to go.
The recipient comes in 3 colors: white, black and white-translucent. For early birds it is possible to get it as cheap as $79, after their campaign the retail price will go up to $129.
kSafe has raised already more than $42,000 out of the $50,000 asked. I have no doubt that they will achieve the goal and get a cookie after.
