The Leatherman Freestyle Tool has everything you need, and keeps the load weight to a minimum.

Whether you need pliers, a wire-cutter, a combo Philips/Flathead screwdriver, a straight blade or a bottle opener/carabineer, you are sure to find it in this nifty multi-purpose tool appliance. 

The Leatherman Freestyle Tool may be handy, but it kind of reminds me of Edward Scissorhands.

Implications - Gadgets that have more than one purpose are always useful. Businesses that create items that have more than one use are more likely to gain customer approval because of the need for all-in-one items in today's busy society. People give items that have more than one function a higher status than those that only have one purpose.
