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.
I’ll be the first to admit that this idea is very impractical, extremely dangerous, and a bit too crazy (even for this blog). So why on earth do I want one? Do people never outgrow their childhood love for Nunchuks? Whatever the reason, it would look cool hanging on the kitchen wall.
After I posted that THOR Hammer Tool Box a few months ago my first thought was, Iron Man is the handy one, he should get a cool tool set too. Tony Stark’s love of cars inspired me to create something specifically for garage-dwelling gearheads: a DUM-E robot comprised of things found in your typical garage.
DUM-E is made up of a shop-vac, pressure washer, mechanic’s creeper, and leaf blower. The latter three all attach to the main vacuum body, and can be removed as needed.
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.
