Doctor Who has the famous sonic screwdriver, and we have the next coolest thing, a Motion Control Electric Screwdriver! Ergonomic, comfortable to hold, and constructed out of stainless steel, it’s a seriously exquisite hand tool with a ton of smarts that will make it your new favorite tool.
Unlike most screwdrivers where you have to twist your wrist like a uncultured barbarian, this screwdriver has an IMU (inertial measurement unit) that can detect when you twist the tool left or right. Hold down the power button, and with the flick of your wrist, the screwdriver will automatically rotate in the direction you twisted! It’s completely amazing, and we use ours every day now.
This smart screwdriver also comes with an OLED screen that displays battery life and rotation mode. Perfect for when you’re installing dozens of stand-offs onto your Crickit projects, or for when you want to feel like a powerful Time Lady or Time Lord from Gallifrey.
