Can You Figure Out All the Uses for the Piranha Multitool?

Illustration for article titled Can You Figure Out All the Uses for the Piranha Multitool?

When it comes to multitools, you can never have enough functions and the Pocket Tool X Piranha really takes that thought to heart. I can't even figure out half the things it's supposed to do. Can you?

I know that there's at least a bottle opener, a nail puller, a scraper pry ends, a double-ended bit holder, a bunch of wrenches on this thing, but it somehow looks like you're getting some sort of hidden functions for your $50. I just don't know what they are. [PocketToolX via Wired via Engadget]

Here's the hidden function: You can use the flat-head screwdriver bit to pry apart the two magnetized halves, inside of which are ten silicone flaps secreted into the various void spaces left between the obvious functions. The silicone flaps fit into the bit, which has a Nd-B magnet in the Phillips end. What you can't quite make out in the picture is that the hex slot the bit fits into (when you're just driving screws) also has a miniature induction motor that will engage the Phillips end when it's inserted in the slot. This will then give you a rotating wheel of silicone flaps.

IOW, it's not just a bottle opener but also a pocket Squeel.
