These Are The 15 Coolest Keychains in History
Everyone loves a good gadget. Sometimes it feels like you’ve seen it all. But what’s old can always be made new again. And that’s lucky for us, because there’s some cool stuff out there that you didn’t realize you needed until you saw it. Take the humble keychain. The simple ring serves a practical function. You don’t need a pocket full of loose keys. You could lose them. As you know, losing your keys can cause you a world of hurt. If only there was an app of some kind that lets you duplicate your keys at anytime of the day as long as you have access to your smartphone (wink, wink).
