Black & Decker’s GRYO™ is the first screwdriver in the industry to use gyroscopic technology, and our community is clamoring to get their hands on it and see just how well it works.

In October, Black & Decker is launching the first motion-activated screwdriver in, the GYRO™ 4V MAX* lithium-ion rechargeable screwdriver, which uses gyroscopic technology to control variable speed and direction. The ToolSelect community is buzzing about how this may change the way they look at cordless tools.

The GYRO™ is the first screwdriver in the industry to use gyroscopic technology, and is designed to let users operate the tool by rotating their wrists a quarter turn to the right for forward and left for reverse. The variable speed is also controlled by the motion of the user’s wrist.

Most cordless screwdrivers use a switch for a direction change and don’t operate with variable speed, but the GYRO™ eliminates the switch and adds variable speed in an effort to give users more control over the tool.

The GYRO™ also features an LED light and comes two standard screwdriver bits, and a jack-plug charger. The tool is covered by a two-year warranty.

“Cordless tools continue to get more innovative as technology expands,” says Tom Klein, vice president of marketing and merchandising with ToolSelect. “Black & Decker’s GRYO™ is the first screwdriver in the industry to use gyroscopic technology, and our community is clamoring to get their hands on it and see just how well it works.”
