AutoAdvance Hybrid Hammer Nail Gun

Of all the tools a person should own, the hammer is definitely one of the simplest and most important. Unfortunately, due to its manual nature, it’s also one of the more dangerous tools in the box. But that’s all going to change thanks to the AutoAdvance hybrid hammer-nail gun.

It took six long years and at least as many prototypes to get it working, but inventor Michael David Young finally managed to create a manually-operated hammer that doesn’t require the user to hold the nails in place. Rather, in a similar fashion to a nail gun, it accepts a bundle of collated nails and auto-dispenses them as needed. What you get, as a result, is a hand tool that’s significantly less bulky than a nail gun, while a lot more convenient and easy to use than a standard old-school hammer. As of right now, it’s still just a concept (albeit a functional one with a pending patent), but we can’t imagine this not hitting the shelves at some point in the near future — the idea is just too good to pass up.
