The device uses facial recognition for its security. If KEEP detects tinkering, the owner will get a smartphone notification. An airtight seal keeps its content fresh and contains odors. Separate containers keep it organised Inside. And there’s also a removable rolling tray and space for accessories. A battery allows owners to use the device anywhere.
