You know those dials at the end of your electric drill, the ones for torque and speed? (Bonus points if you know which is which.) Well, Black & Decker wants to save the average power tool user all of the confusion and guesswork those two dials bring with its Smart Select Technology.

The new line won't have mysterious numbers. Instead, the dial will have pictures of different screw lengths and types, with a windowed gauge that will let you know what speed is right for the job. Black & Decker is also bringing out a jigsaw and a screwdriver, both which use Smart Select (the former letting you pick what material you'll be sawing through). The screwdriver, has a flip-out magnetic carrier that'll hold your screw in place for you, too.
