What is that?

with 6 comments

Tönjes gave me this tiny ‘tool’ because he thought I had left it at his Cafe (MÖRDER). But this wasn’t the case. Then we started guessing what this little needle sort of paperclip tool was good for. Someone said you would need this to eject a sim from an iPhone … is Apple still making you use of the  paperclip emergency technique?!? It is definitely useful to hit reset buttons in little holes but a ball-pen is usually enough for that, no? What is it for? Do you know? It is definitely a pretty sexy, high end tech, sturdy premium steel, well crafted piece of metal. Love it!

  6. …ich denke es ist ein von menschenhand durch menschenverstand geschickt geformtes, später genormtes drahtstück, welches andere menschen zu kreativem denken einlädt,
    da vielfältig verwendbar. auch als seifenblasenspender,
    vorstech-anstech-einstech-durchstech oder ansteckdraht; ein werkzeug daß du nicht verlieren solltest: viel spaß damit im fall der fälle! :-))
