Quadsaw Cuts Square Holes


You’re elbow deep into your home renovations and now’s the time to start cutting some holes into the drywall so you can fit a bunch of electric outlets. Well, have fun. You’re going to have to get the reciprocating saw out and do your best to cut in a straight line. Or, you could just get the Quadsaw adapter, which would allow you to cut a rectangular hole in one go, in as little as 30 seconds. It connects to a drill, which powers the four reciprocating blades simultaneously. We don’t know the exact size of the hole it makes, but we’re really hoping there’s a standard for electric outlet hardware which this device matches. The blades, incidentally, can also be repositioned to cut a perfect square, but once again we don’t know which size and their website doesn’t seem to specify it. It’s also really not cheap, at £199 (~$250 USD), but if you’re an electrician, construction worker, or just a really prolific DIYer, it might be a worthwhile investment.

RightShears Solves A Problem We Didn’t Know We Had


Look, scissors have been around for a while, and for the most part, they do their job just fine. But just fine didn’t seem to be enough for ReExcite, a startup whose website was clearly designed in 1998. They’re making a set of scissors called RightShear and while they do exactly the same thing regular scissors do, they do so at a 90 angle. This way you can keep your hand out of the way of whatever it is you’re cutting. It may seem a little useless for small tasks, but if you’re cutting large pieces of cardboard that better lay flat for some reason, RighShear will get the job done much more easily. As a matter of fact, if you look at videos of the item in action you’ll see the ergonomics are actually quite improved. They’ll be launching a crowdfunding campaign soon at an undisclosed pricepoint, and you can sign up on their page to be notified of when this happens.

The Nemo Special Ops Drill Would Look Great In James Bond’s Toolset


We’re not sure why a company would sell a drill “for special forces” to the regular public, but we suspect it’s just a marketing gimmick. It’s a nice one, to boot, since we’re definitely intrigued by this all-black drill that also works underwater up to 100m.

The Nemo SPECIAL OPS (SO24-6Li-100) is catered to professionals working in special operations and the special forces. With a depth rating of up to 100m (328ft), this drill has a salt-water resistant ALL-BLACK paint job with no logo for maximum concealment. Its 1000-watt brushless technology ensures maximum efficiency and durability. It comes with a durable carrying case, battery charger, pressure valve and pump to pressurize the drill, and two 6Ah batteries, to make sure you’re ready for jobs that require extra power and time. The Nemo SPECIAL-OPS comes with additional accessories geared towards the tasks carried out by special forces, and ranks among some of the top cordless drills on the market.

Nemo SPECIAL OPS accessories include a diving headlamp, a diving tool belt with tool bag, and a handy waterproof bag to keep your battery charger dry.

It’s not like we’re about to go don a wetsuit and drill something underwater, but it’s nice to know that if the fancy took us, we could. Well, no… we couldn’t… because the thing costs an astronomical $1,720 and is currently out of stock.

Chameleon Pen Blends Colors On The Fly, Creates Awesome Gradients


Drawing with an actual pen and ink is a thing that people still do, no matter how much digital drawing tablets have evolved. The Chameleon Pen is an interesting new type of drawing tool that allows you to produce multiple color tones, stunning gradations, highlights, shading & seamless blends, all with one pen. It does this by a process they call “fusing”, during which the nib of your pen enters into contact with the mixing nib of another flask containing coloured toning medium; the longer these two stay in contact, the stronger the gradient will be. The toning medium basically flows into your pen when the nibs touch, mixes in the nib, and then flows back out smoothly as you draw. It’s rather complicated to explain properly, but watch the video below and you’ll see the beauty.

Prices start at $5 for one random colored pen, and $25 for 5 skin or gray toned Chameleon Pens.
