    Interesting, they can't let this fall into the wrong hands.

    Because burning a hole where the screw is can strip the threads.

    Call me when they actually invent a real Sonic Screwdriver. Is there a picture of this thing? I bet it doesn't even fit in your pocket. Bugs me when people claim to have invented the 'real life' version of something and the link between the two things is pretty basic. I just wound the hands on my watch back so I must've created a real life time travel machine that goes back in time.
    What they've created is cool and all but I dislike it when people try and sex their stuff up by comparing it to something that's obviously far more advanced.
