Acton, a Mountain View based transportation company, just released a new electric longboard that’s anything but traditional. Most electric boards combine existing decks and styles with added electronics for power, but the Acton Blink Qu4tro Electric Longboard was built from the ground up to be one of the most advanced electric skateboards on Earth. Four separate hub motors. Carbon fiber deck. Aircraft grade aluminum chassis. Lights on the front and tail with integrated LED strip. Ergonomic remote and app control. Twenty-two mile range. And it all only weighs 17 pounds. Oh yeah, and it’s capable of taking hills with up to a 30% incline. That means you can ride this eBoard to and from work on the famous Lombard Street in San Fran, uphill, both ways, without issue. It might be the perfect way to commute.

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.
