The bike rack is clunky eyesore. Found throughout cities and shore towns, these racks add messiness to an area even when not in use. Milou Bergs, a graduate of the Design Academy Eindhoven, is on a mission to rid the world of these metal monstrosities. The solution? Align. Align is project centered around eliminating this unnecessary noise via a series of pop-up bike racks. The racks hide in the pavement when not in use and pop-up like a seesaw when the front wheel is pressed down into one. Not only does it mean a cleaner look, but it means a useable area when there are no bikes present.

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.
