Better Than an App: Multi-Tool Phone Case Cuts Wood, Opens Bottles

Sure your phone might be smart but can it open bottles or cut wood? Well now there is a way to make your smart phone functional too! TaskOne is a case for the iPhone 4, 4s or 5 that houses a 2.5” serrated knife, saw, screwdrivers, pliers and ten other tools. The design is the creation of a young engineer from Stanford University, Addison Shelton.


“I spend a lot of my day using tools and always wish I had a multi-tool in my pocket, but never carry one due to the size, bulk and inconvenience of a stand alone multi-tool,” says Shelton. So one day he decided to design precisely what he was looking for – a multi-tool that he always had but was never an inconvenience. This was how the TaskOne iPhone case was born.

The latest design, TaskOne G3, provides 22 different tools as well as 2 kickstands and a universal mount for attaching reciprocating saw blades. Large, aluminum buttons make tools more accessible and convenient to use. Thicker, stronger U-bands not only provide more protection for your phone, but also a sturdier grip for when you need your tools. New modifications allow the bottle opener, Allen wrench and knife to be locked in place during use and in storage.
