Triggerless tool drives screws - with only a twist of the wrist
This palm-sized, cordless screwdriver has no forward/reverse switch. Instead, when you grip the handle, squeezing the activation switch, you simply rotate the tool clockwise to drive a screw. An internal gyroscope senses the motion and will even increase or decrease drive speed based on how far you twist. The 4-volt Gyro works great for light-duty driving, but don't expect it to replace your 12-volt or larger drill/drivers. We're anxious to see where Black & Decker takes this gyro technology next.
