Gentlemen, We Have the Technology: The Bionic Wrench

Gearheads and grease monkeys everywhere are raving about The Bionic Wrench, a tool that grips a nut or bolt on all six sides, giving you leverage and strength you never knew you had. That means you have 10 to 30 times more contact area than garden-variety wrenches. Plus, the equal pressure on each side of the bolt lessens the possibility of stripping it. Loosen your grip for the next turn, and it's as fast as a ratchet.

Available in 6-inch ($26) and 8-inch ($29) models, it fits a variety of bolt and nut sizes. No wonder it was the winner of the Popular Mechanics Editor's Choice Award, and the coveted Red Dot Award honoring the Best of the Best 2006 for pioneering tool design. Why didn't anybody think of this before?
