In 2016, the Tactica Talon became the highest funded multitool in crowdfunding history. Using the feedback from thousands of backers, it's since been improved and rechristened the Tactica Original. Packed into its 3.1-inch case that can be attached to a key ring are a multitude of tools, including more than a dozen wrenches (imperial and metric), a bottle opener, a package opener, a ruler, hex sockets, and both Phillips and flathead bits. It's TSA compliant, so you can leave it in your pocket while flying, and its hardened steel core is wrapped in a lightweight composite that won't scratch your phone's screen.

Based in Brooklyn, New York, graphic designer Scott Reinhard combines vintage maps with elevation data to create stunning pieces of art. Reinhard uses a chromogenic process to create each print, which takes traditional color photography development and integrates 3-dimensional data with paper maps for a result that is so visually appealing, you'll be tempted to reach out and feel what looks like 3D texture. The process brings the maps to life, creating a 2D print that is vibrant and detailed giving you a unique work of art that blends history and modern technology. In addition to the topographic maps, Reinhard creates compelling digitally rendered maps and has even adopted his technique to the surface of the moon.
