A true multitasker.

The urge to get things done around the house can hit at funny times. Naturally, the best course of action is to be prepared. Aside from the requisite hammer and nails, a good screwdriver is essential to have on hand. If it is a power screwdriver, all the better; not only does it help to get the job done quickly and easily, but through the use of attachments, it can accomplish most any task. Like opening a bottle of wine.

Yes, opening a bottle of wine is now in the realm of the do-it-yourselfer. The Bosch IXO Vino Cordless Lithium-Ion Screwdriver with Corkscrew Attachment is a small handheld gadget that is truly a multitasker. Available in the U.K., the odd tool features forward and reverse operation (the latter probably not pertaining to wine), a charge level indicator and even an LED guide light for low light situations. Because nothing goes together quite like wine and home improvement.

Sadly, the deadline for the contest to win a limited-edition model decked out with Swarovski crystals has passed. But here are some glamour shots of it anyway.
