There are a number of wrenches described as “universal.” Most of the time, that means you’re actually just getting a bunch of smaller wrenches or sockets built onto either side of a handle. Using the functionality of a camera aperture as his ideation starting point, Seattle-based designer Jordan Steranka has developed a conceptual wrench that could fit any size nut. Using a dial on the side of the wrench, you can change the size of the aperture to fit your nut before locking the aperture into place. There’s even a lighted ring around the aperture mechanism itself so you can see what you’re working on. Unfortunately, the wrench that’s as pretty as it is functional is only a concept at this point.

Xeric watches have always been bold, unique and stylish, but their newest watch is absolutely otherworldly. Xeric teamed up with NASA to create watches for the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11. The dial features a star map of the constellations surrounding Trappist-1. The grill references the ISS cupola window to give you the sense of looking out into space. The dome crystal is Hesalite, a material originally developed by NASA in the ’60s. Time is displayed with planetary hour and minute hands and stars on the sweeping seconds hand. It’s like wearing space on your wrist.
