This contraption combines two Allen wrenches, a screwdriver, and a small hammer (for finishing nails) to help assemble IKEA furniture. I like the idea of having a dedicated IKEA-branded tool on hand, for assembling new stuff or dismantling furniture for a move. The hammer can be replaced with a socket wrench system too.
You can find this product exclusively at Amazon here.
Here is a smaller version of the Thor Hammer Tool Set, this time the main handle is a flashlight. The included tools should be enough for minor tech repairs and other small jobs around the house.
There’s more products on the horizon! The closure of Thinkgeek last year really set a lot of plans back, mine included. I’m hoping Amazon creates a “fun geeky products” section one day, to highlight products similar to what Thinkgeek used to sell.
This Fix It Felix Jr. idea began as a full-size arcade cabinet that stored a tool chest and tool organizer (may post that design one day soon), but I felt a mini tool set would have wider appeal, so I went with that here. This is a functional mini arcade game that doubles as a case for a set of tools.
This opens up like a book to reveal the tools. It’s possible for the arcade to emit the phrase “I can fix it!” when opening the case, but that might get annoying after awhile.
The tools are for gadget-minded folks, no hammers or wrenches here. Included are a pair of pliers, wire cutters, wire strippers, precision screwdrivers, and more. I know the character used a hammer, but that would’ve made this too big.
UPDATE (January 20th 2020): Currently available at Amazon.
I am very pleased to announce that the THOR Hammer Tool Kit design I posted last year is now a thing you can purchase! It is currently available from Thinkgeek (USA), Zing (Australia), and EB Games (Canada). Other international retailers will be announced soon.
UPDATE: This is now a real product, head here for details. Original post as follows:
When it comes to tools there isn’t much in the way of geeky-themed hardware or accessories. Hoping to address this oversight, I present a THOR Hammer tool kit, for those times when you need to swing a hammer. This compact tool box features several tools and a socket set, for those minor jobs around the house that call for a superhero.
When not being carried around for Asgardian cosplay, this hammer opens up to reveal all the tools stored inside. The handle is shared with an actual hammer, which is fastened into a removable tray. Beneath the tray is a reservoir for loose tools and nuts/bolts.
