Coleman Power-Tite

Coleman Power Tools has recently come out with an interesting innovation on the cordless drill. It's a new style of chuck that seems to solve a number of standard problems and inconveniences that accompany the traditional three-jaw chuck. Coleman's Power-Tite's chuck is internal, with some sort of locking mechanism that secures the bit.

This is good for a few of reasons. First, because the tip of the drill doesn't move, there's no chance of marring the workpiece if you're coming in at an angle. Secondly, the way that the chuck is set-up, there is no more need for hand tightening. So if you know of an aging diyer who has arthritis or is losing hand strength, this drill could be quite a gift for them. Finally, and most important (to us, at least), now that the tip of the drill no longer moves, it can be gripped, giving much greater stability and control to the drill.

These things all add up to a tool that looks promising. Could this possibly be the next big evolutionary step for the cordless drill?
