Beachegg: a mobile safe for the beach

Beachegg: a mobile safe for the beach

Sokaknak okoz fejfájást, hogy a strandon hova rejtsék az értékeiket. Íme, a megoldás. 

Summer is coming and for many of us, it means spending lots of time on the beach. A relaxing and refreshing experience... as long as all your valuables remain intact. Nowadays we take not only our wallets and cards, but our phones, maybe even our e-readers and tablets to the beach. If we don't want to put them in a locker or under the beach towel, it's difficult to keep them safe. To solve this problem, a Hungarian startup came up with a revolutionary solution and they introduced Beachegg, a high tech personal mobile safe.  

 

The Beachegg looks like a giant white egg and works like a high tech safe that you can take anywhere with you. You can use it any place where you want to take your valuables with you. If you want to use it in a permanent place, just tie it down and secure it easily. The Beachegg is easy to use: you just put your valuables inside, close it and put on the armband that tracks the egg. The designers of the egg used 5 different safety solutions to make it safe: a unique stainless steel lock mechanism, motion detector system, warning beeps, GPS tracking and UWB technology. So, if someone tries to move or pick up your Beachegg, the alarm will immediately go off. At the same time, your armband will tell you about the incident. Once moved, the location of the egg will be easy to find, as there is a built-in GPS tracking system in it.



 

 

According to beachegg.io, everything that is locked can be opened with the right tools. But, they argue, with its stainless steel locking system and GPS tracking solution the job is made very difficult for the average beach thieves. Even if the Beachegg gets into the wrong hands, the tracking history log will help the police retrieve it.

 

The story of the Beachegg started when founder Gergő Halmi presented his idea of a mobile safe to a software developer company, Virgo. Chief designer Balázs Csapó and the team started to work on the project and came up with the Beachegg. The plan is to have beaches, hotels, spas, festivals and resorts to have an agreement with the company so as the egg can be rented at these locations, but individual purchase will be possible too. Unfortunately, you won't find the Beachegg anytime soon, but the Kickstarter campaign starts this year, and, hopefully, in 2017, all your valuables will be safe and sound during your summer vacation on the beach.
