    Anyone tried one of these?

    At six million dollars they are a tad pricey ;)

    The main problem is the room for that large head, so it would have a very limited use on a car. Fine for around the house maybe

    Or you could buy a decent set of ringers?

    It has some good write ups across the pond with 1.7m sold so far.

    It's not a substitute for a good set of ring spanners or socket but could replace say an adjustable wrench?

    Popular range of sizes covered:

    One 6 inch Bionic Wrench™ covers 6 SAE sizes, 1/4, 5/16, 3/8, 7/16, 1/2, 9/16 inch, and 8 Metric sizes, 7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14mm.

    I think they sold/sell them in Costco, as TV bolts/nuts on cars have very rarely got the access needed.
    I have some Japanese fit all wrenches useful every year or so.
