|Tool Pen by mininch|
One can never have too many tools. Especially, something as elegant and useful as this. I came upon the Tool Pen by mininch on Kickstarter. It was a Staff Pick, and you can see why. The campaign wanted to raise a mere $7000 and ended up getting almost $275,000 in their funding, with over 4,600 backers.
The genius of this gadget is its compact design. You can carry six bits at a time in your Tool Pen, using there 'Pop-A-Point' system. Most quick jobs will not require more than three or four tool bits anyway. Plus, you can have additional bits to pop in as needed.
I was one of the many that backed this project back in August, and today I got my reward. So excited.

A nice added feature is the cap is magnetically held into place. The only flaw is, there is no where to put the cap when you are using the tool. You cannot have it placed on the end, as it would get in the way or pop off whilst torquing down a screw. This is a minor flaw and the magnetic cap more than makes up for it. I like magnets, too.
