Philip Wilkins has used cannabis to treat his epilepsy ever since it became federally legal in his home country of Canada. But with three kids under the age of 5, Wilkins worried about how to store his medicine so his kids couldn’t find it. So he created KEEP, the first smart-storage device specifically designed for cannabis and prescription medicine. The device ($249) is biometrically locked and connected to an app on your phone, which will alert you if someone tries to open it. KEEP also features temperature and humidity controls, and a hermetic seal. With a sleek, discreet design, KEEP hides in plain sight. “People don’t want to feel like they’re 17 in their parents’ basement,” Wilkins says. “They’re adults.” —Madeleine Carlisle
