Maybe it's because I move around a lot, but I find myself nailing pictures up pretty often. Here's the thing, though: what do you do with your nails? You can stick a few of them in your mouth, sure, or make annoying trips back to wherever you left them in a pile. This clever Nail Hammer would solve those problems, but it's got one big problem itself.
Designers Jinsoo Cho and Ahjin Choi have designed it so that the shaft of the average hammer now acts as a depository for your nails. There's a cover you slide up and down, and once you need a nail it's as easy as lifting the shield and pulling them out.
The problem, though? If you look close, you'll see that the nails slide in in such a way that they're angled up, meaning that you have to tilt the hammer forward when grabbing a nail. Check it out:
This may seem like the natural way for you to hold the Nail Hammer when extracting nails, but it seems like anyone going in for a quick nail would also find all the bits spilling out onto the floor.
Even still, we're all for redesigning humble tools to make them work harder, and the Nail Hammer has that going on.
