Ever since I’ve been in college, I’ve wanted to have a secure place to store my valuable belongings to ensure that other people don’t steal them. Since safes are pretty expensive, and storage rooms inconvenient to use, I’ve had to store my valuables in my drawer. Although convenient to get to, items stored in a drawer are susceptible to theft, which makes me slightly concerned as I have heard stories of valuables getting stolen from some of my friends.
Therefore, for my project I decided to build a fingerprint safe to protect my valuables at all times. Built out of the strongest material on earth (wood), the FingerSafe Fortress 3000 is the latest and most innovative solution that guarantees 24/7 protection of my valuables! Using fingerprint recognition, I don’t have to worry about remembering a code to access the safe, rather I can simply enroll my fingerprint and access my valuables knowing only enrolled users can access my valuables.
