Everyday Objects Stash Money, Secrets, Drugs, IDs Yiting Cheng just finished up a master's degree in design, but she could already teach James Bond a thing or two about stashing valuables. For her thesis project, Cheng designed a series of eight objects that ingeniously store secrets--from passwords to money to drugs to IDs.
