The Smart Idea | Fear Not Hammer

The Smart Idea | Fear Not Hammer

Like DIY but need to work on your hand eye coordination skills? This is the hammer for you. 

There's a time during DIY where you feel like you know what you're doing. That time is when you carry the toolbox into a room. After that, it's anything goes.

Designer Cheng-Wei Wang felt the same, so he created this hammer, which comes with a protective sheath at the bottom you can put around any nails. A nail buffer, if you will.

An entry into the IF design awards, Cheng-Wei Wang's invention comes at a time when we're all tied to the desk more than ever, so might not have enough time to work on our DIY skills. And no, dad in law, that isn't an bad excuse.
