This is truly awesome. I am really impressed with the "invention "here. I also can see one extremely viable and important application--surgery. I know we may need this toolbox in the model shop, machine shop, lab, etc but we also need the ability to do just as you have demonstrated during and after surgery. I can tell you a couple of horror stories about this one. Great work. I love the RFID capability and the ability to find a missing and/or borrowed tool. As I mentioned, the operating room needs this "tool box". Again-- great work.
I love the idea of keeping track of tools. Will it be able to find those my son has borrowed? Will it be able to remind me about the screwdriver I put in my back pocket before I tear the seats in my car? I can find the stuff in my box, it is the borrowed, misplaced or lost tools I need help with.
Interesting and I see a system that has much potential. How does the touch screen work with latex gloves; or what happens when a job requires tools from vertically adjacent drawers? Could the program be configured for each step of the job which then potentially would remove the drawer conflicts!
