Strapping engines to things that weren’t originally designed to have engines is something of an American pastime, but a little company based in the Basque Country of the western Pyrenees has taken it to a new level with their jet boards. Rather than the more traditional wave power surfers use for propulsion, Onean’s Carver electric jet board uses a 4400W dual-core brushless electric motor and a high-efficiency axial water pump for promotion. The board itself is made with sandwich construction and a CNC-shaped EPS core, but when compared to surfing with a jet below your feet, that seems far less important. If, for whatever reason, you want to take things a little easy, Onean is also taking pre-orders on a wider, more relaxed cruiser called the Manta.

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.
