I’m digging this wooden key rack concept by designer Thomas Bedós Bonaterra. Rather than using a mundane fastener such as a hook or Lego brick, his version relies on a hidden magnet to fasten your keys to the key rack. I wonder if it will support the unwieldy set of keys that I carry around? [via notcot]

    There’s some rare earth magnets you could bury in the wood that would probably hold the car, let alone the “unwieldy set of keys” that many carry.

      Ha, good point. Ok, I wonder if my wall is strong enough to support the unwieldy car that I drive around?

    I love this idea, but wonder if it would harm my car keys that have a security chip in them, as well as controlling the door locks, and ID for the seat settings.

    Nice design, but a lot of my keys are non-ferrous.

    In fact out of the 8 keys I carry around, only 1 would stick to a magnet.

    but is suppose the keyring would stick, but still wouldn’t look as cool as the photo above.

    But also holds your mail.

    It holds my giant set of keys rather well and has yet to cause any problems with a small array of chipped keys and security swipey things. Not bad at all for 13 bucks.

    I just bought a stack of 1mm thick by 8mm diameter rare earth magnets. You could glue one of them to each non ferrous key and then they would stick no problem.

    As long as your electronics don’t use hall effect sensors (unlikely) I don’t think the magnets would affect alarm fobs and so on? You wouldn’t want to stick your magnetic swipe/credit cards to it though of course!

    I really like this… Great look simple design, and functional… I only worry about people with USB drives on the key chain.

    Other than that great make.

    “I only worry about people with USB drives on the key chain.”

    USB devices are not sensitive to magnets.

    Not a bad idea.. plus you can probably “make” one today with a magnetic knife holder

    Looks brilliant. They already have really completed their very own work with this then made design and style important. Oahu is the first time I could truthfully basically find myself personally applying Home windows once more. Android os, on the other-hand is a clusterf*ck regarding poo.
