The Rio 2016 Paralympic Summer Games begin September 7 and Team USA is going in with a fine piece of machinery courtesy of BMW. Over the past year, Designworks USA, BMW’s creative design firm, has worked with the U.S. team to build a better racing wheelchair. Something far, far better than the versions that came before it. This is that wheelchair. For aerodynamics, the team went with a carbon fiber build, and for comfort, they chose a seat that could be custom-molded for each athlete after they get a full body scan. This is wildly different from the racing wheelchairs currently around. Many models used were not much more than┬ámedical wheelchairs turned into tricycles. Can it help Team USA snag gold? Keep an eye out this September.

In short, this is a key-shaped multi-tool built of stainless steel that has all of the tools you need for everyday repairs for everything from light switches to bicycles. Bit driver. Protractor. Metric and Imperial rulers. Imperial and Metric closed wrenches. Bottle Opener. File. Scoring tip. Wire bender and bike spoke key. Wire stripper. Screwdrivers. 1/4 hex driver pocket. So you might need to throw in some hex bits for specific projects, but otherwise, the Geekey has you covered for almost all of your everyday repair needs. As if that wasn’t enough, the hexogon can also serve as a smoking bowl, with the shaft of the key hollowed out to serve as a pipe.
