This week’s selection is the Plant Pot with Hidden Box by Factorian Designs.

This is quite an interesting design, although it may not at first appear to be so. At a glance it seems to be a rather attractive 3D printed plant pot, similar to many designs publicly available.

If you lift the pot and look underneath — being very careful to not spill the plant — you’ll see a curious square on the bottom.

This area, if pushed, activates the release and a small box can be pulled out.

The box can serve as a secret storage location for small items, like keys, currency, documents, or even your valuable crypto keys.

When inserted, the plant pot looks perfectly normal and no one would possibly suspect that there’s something hidden in the pot.

This is a brilliant design that’s easily 3D printed and assembled.

The model isn’t available for free, however. It’s posted on Thangs and Cults3D, which require fees. On Thangs you can join as a member and download three premium models per month for US$5, or more at a US$7 monthly fee. On Cults3D you can download just this one 3D model for just over US$3.
