Well, I like it; however, there is one slight flaw. If any public person can open the box with the key, then they could steal everyone's stuff that is inside the box. Unless the stuff inside the box is encrypted with a private key, then the stolen stuff would be useless. However, can you clarify on the problem I just mentioned. If that was how it really works, then anyone could steal your stuff.
