Tactical Credit Card AX Fits An Axe In Your Wallet

credit-card-ax-16817

If you’re McGuyver, surviving involves finding a pack of gum, a paperclip and a match head. Most other people, however, would requires some semblance of tools, and the Tactical Credit Card AX is as cool as they come. It’s a flat piece of metal that can fit in a wallet, and yet can be attached to a piece of wood and turned into a makeshift axe. Stamped from 304, 12 gauge stainless steel, the item also features up to 21 separate functions, which makes it into a multi-tool as well. It may not be able to cut down a large tree, but it’ll make the task of collecting twigs for an impromptu fire a little easier. It’s $30.

The Strong Enter Key Will Take Your Abuse, So Your Laptop Doesn’t Have To

Village-Vanguard-Strong-Enter-Key

Think about it: where do you most often take out your petty online frustrations, if not on the Enter key? That troll pissing you off? You’ll punctuate your message with a heavy blow on the key. That browser not loading your website fast enough? You’ll mash the key a few times. Right? They’re built to last, sure, but sooner or later they’ll give up the ghost. So, to save your keyboard, you can purchase the Strong Enter Key. It’s made to do just one thing: serve as an alternate return carriage key. It’s large, presumably made from strong materials, and costs 2,500 Yen (approx. $21 USD).

Pinch! Titanium Multitool Is About As Small As They Get

pinch-2

Chalk this one up to efficient minimalism, but we can’t remember the last time we came across a multitool that crammed this many functions in as little a package. The Pinch! Titanium Multitool is able to do 11 different things, yet measures 1.5”x 0.5”, which is small enough to be carried around everywhere. Functions include: wire stripper, bottle opener, mining pry bar, and more. The image below lists them all. A $19 pledge will get you an Early Bird Pinch!, with the price going up to $22 if you’re late to the party.

The Pocket Shot Is A New Kind Of Slingshot

pocket-shot-1

Apparently some people use slingshots to do marginally useful things, like hunting. However, most people associate them with Bart Simpson style shenanigans… and that’s precisely why we love them! Not that we’re going to go around shooting the neighbourhood up, but fun is fun. The Pocket Shot, pictured above, appears to be a whole new take on the concept. Instead of the familiar Y-shaped frame, you have a plastic ring with a weird finned rubber bag attached. You simply pop your projectile in the bag, pull back and shoot like you would a normal slingshot. The makers claim speeds up to two to three times greater than regular slingshots, reaching 350 feet per second. Appropriately, they’re not calling this a toy and are limiting its sale to those 18 and over. You get two versions of the bags, a regular and a pro, with what we imagine to be two different draw weights and projectile speeds. At $25 for the main device, and as little as $2.50 for a bag, it’s dirt cheap; there’s even an optional “whisker biscuit cap” attachment to shoot arrows with!

SodaStream Mix Injects Bubbles Into Your Cocktails

sodastream

Machines like the SodaStream, which do nothing more than carbonate your water, are of dubious utility in a world where a can of Coke costs next to nothing. That might be why the company has apparently decided to create the SodaStream Mix, an “adult version” of the same machine. Instead of carbonating your water only, this connected device is able to fizz up any alcoholic drink you want; it will adjust its carbonation levels based on the viscosity of the mix you insert. You just have to swipe through the many recipes available, pick the one you’re making, and insert your flat liquid only to have to come out nice and bubbly a few minutes later. There’s no word on price or availability.

HUMMbucker Electric Kazoo Will Make You The Best Neighbour

HUMMbicker-kazoo-electric-2

The sound of a kazoo already ranks up there amongst one of the most annoying things that can fall on your eardrums. But what kazoos have always lacked is the ability to project their melodious wail much further than a few feet. With the HUMMbucker Electric Kazoo though, you’ll have the power of electricity at your side. Just plug your kazoo (hard not to laugh just writing those words) into your amp, crank the volume up to 11, and prepare for the onslaught of angry taps, kicks and punches to your walls and ceiling from your now incensed neighbours. Or, you know, don’t be a prick and just use this as it’s intended: in a melodically dubious hipster concert.

It’s $17 and comes with a 15′ cable and a 1/4″ jack.

Magnetic Vest Holds Your Tools For You

magnetic-vest

This is either a great idea, or an accident waiting to happen: it all depends on just how strong the magnets are. The Mag-Vest is being marketed to garage tinkerers for its ability to hold on to your metal tools with strong C8 Grade ceramic magnets, which reportedly can hold up to 10 pounds. If you’re working on something, you might find it more convenient to place some things on your chest, rather than in a tool box nearby or on the side of the hood where they might fall into the engine bay. It’s not a bad idea, but being untested we would worry that the 10 pound claim is optimistic. However, if they’re strong enough to prevent your hammer from flattening your pinky toe, it might be worth the $60 pledge.
