*Note: This contest is over, comments are now closed.

Ok gang we have some NEW MAKE tools coming in, actually they’re here now – thing is, we need to name them. If we pick a name you come up with, we’ll send you one – the very first one in fact, hot off the laser etcher!

These are bigger and toolier (is that a word? should be) than our MAKE: warranty voider Leatherman tools, they are the Leatherman “Juice” model… The Juice CS4 tool comes equipped with pliers, regular and hard wire cutters, straight knife, and four screwdrivers-extra small, small, medium/large, and a Phillips. Also features can/bottle opener, corkscrew, serrated scissors, saw and awl.

So we need to name it and then put in the LASER to etch them, post up your suggestion in the comments, here is what we’ve heard before so don’t use these…

    The Void-O-Matic, it cuts! It pries! It…unscrews things!
    I keep thinking of the Dan Ackroyd sketch from SNL, Super Bass-O-Matic 76…best link I could find:
    http://www.jibjab.com/view/172241

    Or how about SuperVoider – More powerful than a shrink-wrap license! Able to leap warrantees in a single bound!

    Lastly, how about HandMod – Upgrade your hand with the best thing since opposable thumbs!

    I can just see the commercials – “Still using a rock to open electronics cases? [caveman smashing a case with a rock, then looking confused and disappointed with results] Then try our new…”

  • Keith

    Since everyone needs a “thingamajig” to have around the house, and since most makers have several, we should call this little guy a:

    “think-a-MAKE-jig”

    in order to differentiate it.

    Variations: think&MAKEjig, thinkaMAKEjig, tinkerMAKEjig.

  • Harish

    Either BeetleJuice or BeatleJuice, for sure.

    Justification? Here’s some wiki-age for you:

    “Beetles are a group of insects which have the largest number of species. … [The group] contains more described species than in any other order in the animal kingdom, constituting about twenty-five percent of all known life-forms.”

    The new Maker Tool has more tools than any other tool, no?

    If you go for BeatleJuice, just know you’re using a kick-ass band’s name to describe your tool == yum.

  • Nic

    Circuit Breaker
    Improviser

  • Harish

    Oh, the spacing [or lack thereof] is optional :) Beatle Juice/Beetle Juice works too!

    Didn’t notice that “open sesame” was taken…

    That’s what you’re supposed to do with this tool right? Take stuff apart and reorder it to suit your needs. I needed a name, so I took the word MAKE apart and reordered it!

    I don’t remember seeing these but I might be mistaken:

    If not one of my ideas, I vote for one of the following:

    Make: Thing Opener
    MAKR Key
    Your MAKR – as in to meet your maker
    Hack Attack

    Lots of good suggestions here, and a fair bit of truly silly ones. Fun times!

    For “enhancer”…

    That would be “Make:” on one handle, like the older one, and “enhancer” on the other handle.

  • ScuderiaConchiglia

    This could not be any easier. It should be called simply “The Tool” of course.

    MAKE: Mischief

  • Robin Debreuil

    How about “Thy Maker” or “Your Maker”?

    It has a nice personal friendly feel, and but still the “meet your maker” undertone (I think people would get that). You could say to that old printer when you pull it out, ‘prepare to meet thy maker’…

    love the blog btw : )

    I think it should be called the Delver’s tool.

    A Delver is one that digs in and searches laboriously. I think that this is the essence of Making.

    It is not just about tinkering, it is about digging into an unknown and searching for the truth of the matter. Getting past the corporate labyrinths and finding the treasure within. It is about using what you have to make things better for you.

    The Delvers of the past and Makers of the current live by their wits, talents, and skills. They often make do with what they have at hand. They are jacks-of-all-trades.

    Delvers preferred tools that had multiple uses over specialized tools. This allowed them to maximize their abilities and minimize their encumbrance.

    I see many parallels between Makers and Delvers and I think that creating this link between the two sub cultures would be an excellent way to honor the past, while creating the future.

  • Toaste

    I like to think a multi-tool as a license for unintended use of other things. Just looking at it brings to mind circumventing tamper-proof cases, clever kludge fixes, and the joy of getting something apart without a manual. Names follow:

    Information Technology (IT) is a general term that describes any technology that helps to produce, manipulate, store, communicate, and/or disseminate information.

    I thought that name matched the spirit of the Make site, and has the additional meaning of “Make It”.

    OK, and if you’re obsessed with alliteration, you could go with “Blue Bulldozer.”

    Or if you want to be both cutely annoying and alliterative, the “Bitsy Blue Bulldozer” is guaranteed to raise a little howl of protest (and it even contains an oblique electronics wordplay–“bits”-y). Now I have to go kick my own ass for suggesting this. Man, I need coffee.

    You only need two tools for a great project –

    1. Duct tape to put stuff together, once you’re done using..

    2. Un-Duct Tape to take stuff apart

    In the same vein, it could be a “Sanity Separator” to go along with Crazy Glue.
