Coral Tools Multi Tool Even Keeps Hammer from Meeting Fingers
July 1st, 2011
I admit that I have a bunch of tools around the house and I can only find half of them. Every time I need a tool, it’s generally the basic screwdriver or hammer that I am on the hunt for and just can’t find. I doubt I’d lose something quite as unusual looking as these Coral Tool multi-tools designed by Jinyoung Choi.
The tool looks sort of like a pyramid and has four arms. Under one of the arms is a flat tip screwdriver, the other has a Phillips tip driver, and one of the others is a wine bottle opener. The coolest part is the arm that hides a guide for nails.
When you need to hammer in a nail, the design of the Coral Tools keeps your fingers spread apart, but keeps the nail firmly held so you can get it started into the surface. You actually whack the back of the Coral Tools device it seems. Once the nail is started, you just hammer it in the rest of the way.
I wonder if this will ever make it to the real world, or if it will just remain a concept.
