Julie at The Gadgeteer reports on a new multi-tool that you can configure yourself. The Switch set from Quirky comes in a case with two exterior body covers, two slotted axle caps (removable with a quarter), three interior axle assemblies, and 18 tool attachments. You pick the tool attachments you want and assemble them on the appropriately-sized axle: small for 2—6 tools, medium for 4—10 tools, and large for 7—13 tools, as shown below.
The tool attachments include a standard Knife, pliers, scissors, a nail file, tweezers, a thin flathead screwdriver, a Phillips screwdriver, a small eyeglass Phillips screwdriver, a small eyeglass flathead screwdriver, a wood saw, a serrated blade, a corkscrew, a combination bottle opener/flathead screwdriver, a combination can opener/wire stripper, a pen, a magnifying glass, an LED flashlight, and — of course — a 1GB USB memory stick.
It’s currently on “presale” for $68. What do you think? Is it worthwhile because it’s reconfigurable?
