Abstract/Artist Statement

Currently there is no gun safe that allows the owner to see their gun while it is in the gun safe, dissuading approximately 54% of owners from using DOJ compliant safes at all. The objective of Vericia is to create a revolutionary gun safe compliant with the strictest CA DOJ certification while preserving firearm visibility, deterring theft and unsafe handling of firearms. Vericia uses an electromagnet to keep the firearm securely in place. It is constructed out of a solid block of aluminum for strength and security. The electromagnet may be disabled using a 9 digit keypad or an optical fingerprint scanner. A front door secured by two solenoid locks guards the trigger and reveals storage for two magazines. An 18,000 mAh battery ensures days of power from a full charge. A screen provides useful information, such as battery life, lock status, and date and time last opened. Everything is 3D modeled and precisely milled using a CNC.
