This Is Probably the Best-Looking, Most High-Tech Gun Safe You’ll See

Fancy, eh?

The Gun Box

This is the Gun Box. It’s currently seeking funding on Indiegogo. I know zero about guns and the receptacles one would use to store guns, but this thing really looks more like an oversized wireless router and there’s a bunch of tech to talk about here, so let’s keep moving.

At the top of the line, the Gun Box Premier will set you back $400 at retail (you can get discounts on each version by backing the project on Indiegogo). For that, you get the router-looking box, which is made of aircraft strength aluminum alloy and is damn-near fireproof and damn-near tamper proof. In fact, if someone tampers with it, its motion sensors will kick in and send an alert to your phone.

It’s also got GPS, so if someone steals it, you’ll be able to track it on a map (there’s a Kensington lock port to prevent theft in the first place). The back of the box has two USB ports; the idea being that you can put this thing on your nightstand and plug your gadgets into the ports at night for charging.

Fancy, eh? All this for a box you use to lock up your handgun. Oh, and to unlock it, you can use your fingerprint instead of fumbling around with keys or however else people usually lock up their guns.

The $300 version gets you many of the same features, minus the GPS stuff. The $240 version gets you many of the same features but sports an RFID lock instead of a fingerprint lock. You unlock it by waving a wristband or ring that contain built-in smart chips over the box. The same feature comes standard along with the fingerprint unlocking mechanism found in the two more expensive models.

This looks like a nice little gun safe, but I worry that the electronic components are not as reliable as mechanical ones would be. Batteries have been known to die, and other disasters could make the gun inside inaccessible. I prefer mechanical ones for the time being, but I'm open to trying new things.

You were right, this is definitely the most high tech safe I've ever seen. I really like that it requires a biometric scan before you open it. One of the main reasons why I put off getting a gun was the fear that a burglar could get to it before I do. This feature effectively eliminates that from being possible.  http://safeswarehouse.com.au/shop/category/gun-safes

Wow! This gun safe is extremely high tech! I like how it also has a GPS in it so you can track it down if someone steals it. Where can I get one of these? It would be so much easier than a safe that uses a key.

Most handguns will fit within The GunBox except for a few larger caliber pistols and some revolvers. We recommend measuring your handgun before purchasing to make sure your firearm will fit. --Inside Dimensions are--8.9in Wide x 6.5in Tall x 1.5in Deep

Count me in! This IS the best gun box you can buy. Why nobody thought about it before? USB ports are useful too!
