Takes some practice to get the speed right, but a good tool,

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
My spouse and I are handy around the house and we use our screwdrivers daily. This electrical screwdriver has an interesting twist (pun intended!): it's motion-activated! It has a gyroscope inside that can tell whether you're turning it right or left. The more you turn in the direction, the faster the motor drives the bit. However, it does take some practice to get used to the variable speed, and I've found it actually a little frustrating to use for certain applications. At the beginning, I also had to remember to squeeze the grip to activate the motorized mechanism. You can tell it's activated when the light comes on. The screwdriver is powered by a built-in LiIon rechargable battery, and an AC adapter is included, along with standard-sized flat bit and cross bit. Overall, though, it's a really handy tool to have around, and I'm ordering an additional one.
