A Gadget To Help You Resist Temptation: Kitchen Safe

A Gadget To Help You Resist Temptation: Kitchen Safe

Giving in to temptation can ruin our best efforts at change. But what if there was a gadget that could help us build better behaviors and control our ability to not give in to addiction when willpower is low?

The Kitchen Safe does just that! It’s a commitment device that helps us resist our cravings by controlling our environment.

The Kitchen Safe is essentially a junk food lockbox—but it has many other uses. Satisfied customers claim it increases their productivity or family bonding time by locking up cellphones, remotes, game controllers, and power cords. While others lock up addictive substances such as medications, drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, and credit cards.

If you wish to limit your exposure to a certain item, place the item in the Kitchen Safe, close the lid, and set the timer. Once the timer is set and the button is pressed, the safe locks and cannot be opened until the timer reaches zero. The timer duration can be set for any time between 1 minute and 10 days!

The Kitchen Safe will limit nighttime snacking and end family conflicts over junk food. It may even help health enthusiasts to reach weight loss goals faster through the virtue of precommitment.

The Kitchen Safe’s dimensions are 6.25″ Width x 6.25″ Length x 7.5″ Height. The biggest complaints purchasers have is there is only one size. Most consumers would love to purchase Kitchen Safe in multiple sizes.

You can purchase a Kitchen Safe for $49 from their website, and for a limited time get free shipping to select countries.

“Great product! You call this the ‘Kitchen Safe.’ I call it ‘The Vault.’ I’ve nicknamed mine ‘Mom’ because I’ve got about the same chance of getting into my chocolate stash before the timer allows as I did begging my own mom for candy when I was a kid! Not gonna happen!! Thanks guys!” – Monica

What would you keep in your Kitchen Safe?

Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

Does technology have all the answers?

This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

Creating technological solutions transparently

This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

Technology as the connecting tool

Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

“Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
