CROWDFUNDING NEWS – If you like to carry the most basic tools with you when you’re on the go, you need to take a look at the Urbanix multi-function tool, which is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter. You may have seen similar carabiner-style tools in the past, but this one has to be the smallest one that I’ve seen before. This tool is tiny enough to fit on your keychain but still offers some handy tools for quick DIY tasks.
What is it?
The Urbanix is a miniature multi-tool made of durable CNC-machined TC4 titanium. The built-in tools include:
- Blade (small enough that it’s TSA-compliant)
- Flat screwdriver
- Phillips screwdriver
- Bottle opener
- 3 Hex wrenches (4, 6, and 7 millimeters)
Why do I like it?
I like the Urbanix because it’s small enough to clip to a keychain, a belt loop, or just to carry in your pocket. The best tool is the one you have with you, and this little multi-tool can solve problems or fix issues on the fly when you don’t want to carry a full-sized multi-tool.
Where can I find more info?
The Urbanix campaign ends on 02/08/24, and they have already met their modest funding goal of $639. You can pre-order an Urbanix starting at $31. After the Urbanix campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in April 2024. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.
