This week's gadget is the new WORX SD SemiAutomatic Driver tool. Featuring a six slot revolving chamber that rotates screw-driving bits in and out as you pump the handle. Shift from slotted to Phillips or square recess without ever touching the bit, since inside the tool’s body is a rotating circular cartridge that holds six 1-inch hex-shanked bits. Slide back the magazine (cover) to advance a bit into the chamber, release, and slide the cover forward and it’s ready to drive screws. Each bit is stored in the cartridge, so no more lost or missing bits. It comes with six of the most common bits, but since 1-inch hex-shanked bits are widely available, you can customize the cartridge to meet your own needs. It's powered by a 4V Lithiumion built-in battery, which can hold a charge for up to 18 months.

But wait, there's more! There's a magnetic Screw Holder feature to easy hold a screw in place as you power drive it into your project. Plus there's an LED light to illuminate the work area, plus a forward/reverse rotation button. The 1.0 lb. tool has a ¼-in. chuck, a no-load speed of 230 rpm with a maximum torque of 27 in-lbs. This is designed for light to medium projects around the house, not for heavy-duty projects. MSRP: X255L, $34.99
