Created by British designers the unique MetMo Driver multitool has raised over $2.5 million thanks to its crowdfunding campaigns and over 13,000 backers worldwide. The precision engineered multitool can be used for a wide variety of different applications and features a unique high torque driver. Offering twice the power of a standard power drill and is capable of creating a maximum torque of 76Nm or 672 in lbs. Force 1000N (100kg) x distance from rotational axis 0.076m = 76Nm (672 in-lbs)
Backer early bird pledges are now available for the recently launched project from roughly $131 or £109 (depending on current exchange rates), offering a considerable discount of approximately 21% off the retail price, while the Indiegogo crowd funding is under way.
“Not since the mid 20th Century have we seen a design like MetMo Driver. A piece of engineering history re-imagined for the modern day. MetMo Driver is both a fidget toy and tool, keeping you satisfied for hours on end either fiddling with it or using it to drive to the centre of the Earth.
The MetMo Driver is a hybrid of the hand braces of old (the pre-cursors to electric drills) and modern ratchet screwdrivers. Made for designers, engineers, thinkers, and anyone who wants to just take a moment to focus, relieve stress or just play around. MetMo Driver is both a powerful and versatile tool and amazingly fun to fiddle with!”

“We set out to infuse our signature MetMo satisfaction with one of the most well used tools in existence, the humble screwdriver. We were fascinated by Conrad Baumann’s ratchet driver from the 1950’s and its mesmerising exposed ratchet mechanism, so we set to work to create the most powerful and compact driver in existence and, while we’re at it, inject some MetMo satisfaction at every opportunity.”
“MetMo Driver is a tool you won’t want to hide away in your tool box! Designed to be fiddled with, each rotation and click has been meticulously crafted to give you maximum satisfaction, even just sat at your desk.”
