The World's Smartest Keyring

While wallets get thinner, phones get smarter and smaller (and then occasionally bigger), one pocket-dwelling item hasn't changed for the better part of a century: the key. Small enough to lose on its own, frustratingly intrusive in a bunch, it's forever lumped the jeans of men and scratched countless screens. The KeyDisk 2 is looking to change all that.

Yes, we're getting excitied about what is essentially a keyring - but stick with us here. Unless you're fortunate enough to live in a fingerprint-accessed condo, you'll be familiar with the occasional frustration caused by the bulk of an over-large clump of keys.

Capable of holding up to nine individual keys, the KeyDisk 2 is a superb, sleek alternative to the conventional keyring. A triangular construction of sandblasted and anodized aluminium, three pass-through screws lock the disc together and act as the anchor points for your key's loop. Unscrew the three screws and you're able to attach your keys - with washers helping keep things tight and level should you have an unbalanced number of keys to fit.

The triangular shape allows you to "hide" the key within the main disk shape of the KeyDisk 2 (the first model proved tricky to retrieve your keys). When you arrive at your car, front door or bike lock, you just slide your key out from the cluster.

Available in gunmetal grey or onyx black, you can put in an order for a KeyDisck 2 for around £12 on its Kickstarter project. A simple, clever design, it'll also bring an end to you clunking down the street like a school janitor. You could say it's a key accessory. But we won't.
