Tubox / beach locker


Tubox is a personal locker used at the beach. Its name is a compound of tube and box. Its user
Doesn’t need to go somewhere to keep their belongings. They can rent it and connect it to parasol, and
Monitor it by smart bend. Also, using method is so simple that user doesn’t need to learn how to use it.
When user want to open it, the only thing to do is touch the tubox with the bend. Every tubox has its number on it, so user can find their parasol seat easily. And when unidentified person tries to open it, smart bend tells user with red light on its edge side to notice it and call 911. It is expected to reduce the crime rate at the beach.
