Dromos

versatile handheld motor

Dromos is an attempt to bring the technical category of handheld tools to a level of new possibilities. Refusing the terrific and dashing look of established home tools that does anything but reflect the main usage, Dromos strives for a functional aesthetic. It is its aim to bring the flexible and practical demands of heavy industry to anybody’s home. Therefore, Dromos features two modules that determine the intended use:

A battery with a unique slanted angle that supports the function as an electric drill and an adapter for stationary use as a motor. Both modules provide switches for changing the rotational direction. So, Dromos is not only a practical and robust drill, but also a reliable engine for winds, ventilators, opening mechanisms, etc. A floor panel screwed on the machine enables tight assembly on every surface, the adapter features the possibility of remote control.
