Electrophoretic ink, E Ink, is one of those technologies born of the MIT Media Lab that never really saw that commercial application. What used to almost exclusively be the realm of Kindles, Nooks and Kobo e-readers is going to get a whole lot more interesting in September when Twelve24 makes their ClockONE available for purchase. The display is based on four large numerals designed to show time like an old school alarm clock with more elegant corners on the markings. Hang it on the wall with the magnetic mounting system, and push the simple + or – buttons in the middle to adjust the time. The simple, elegant design of the 4mm thin clock that’s so efficient the single battery will last over a year makes it cool to say the least, but it’s the sheer size that will have most people interested. At one meter wide and 35cm tall, this clock is just as much statement piece as it is time keeping device.

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.
