    How many of you use a Leatherman or similar multi-tool or EDC on a regular basis?

    Idly wondering if many use such a tool... I find mine very useful for odd tasks, and a godsend for certain others, like when you are back up the ladder and you need a knife/file/scissors/small screwdriver. Many are one-handed operation and give you just the tool you need from time to time.

    Clap on/off light switch that can be used inside a regular switch

    Has anyone done this before? Its a gimmick I know but I always wanted to do it. I can see some sound activated switches but nothing that specific to claps, unless its a DIY one. I dont see how a DIY clap switch can go into a wall.
