Not much good came out of the eighties. Any positive cultural additions (the films of John Hughes, The Ferrari Testarossa, Cindy Crawford) were mitigated by an overwhelming number of bad additions (leg warmers, synth pop, any and all hairstyles). Boomboxes were an exemplary positive addition, but with the advent of digital music, they’ve gone the way of the dinosaur. Almost. This retro 80’s beaut brings back the flash, and fits any iPod device to supply the tunes. It also has an auxiliary in so your options aren’t limited, as well as an FM tuner. Moreover, you can record anything off the FM tuner as an MP3 directly on to a SD card or USB drive. And while it includes a power cord, it’s made to run off those “D” batteries, just like they did back in the day.

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.
