The Keyport eliminates your keychain – Click above to watch video after the jump

It's no fun to be "that guy." You know, the one wearing a janitor-sized keyring with 20 keys clinking together with each step, making you sound like Santa's sleigh as you jingle all the way to your car door. Keyport has the fix for this.

The Keyport multi-tool allows you to store up to six keys in a single unit, each sitting on a separate slider that can be pushed out as needed. If you have fewer keys than available slots, you can attach a USB slider, LED flashlight and even a bottle opener.

With stainless-steel construction and a variety of color offerings, the Keyport, starting at $49, isn't cheap. And each key you you need in the device adds an additional $4.99 to the bottom line. Keyport will have them cut and placed onto the slider blades for you. If your car requires a chipped key, be advised: that blade will cost you $20. Should you be driving a vehicle that uses keys equipped with proximity sensors, you're currently out of luck: the Keyport system isn't designed to handle those setups.

Still, the Keyport screams "easy sub-$100 Father's day gift" to us. Head over to MyKeyport.com for more information on this keyring-canceling multi-tool. Curious to see one in action? Click past the jump to see a video demo.

      For the $100 this would cost to outfit this with a chipped key, 3 standard ones, a flashlight, and whatever, I would rather just be "that guy" with the extra C-note in my pocket to boot. Besides, the writer opened up saying "that guy" has 20 keys clinking around, and this thing only hold 6 max. So "that guy" is going to end up with 14 noisy clinking keys anyway, some new boxy looking lump in his front pocket, and $100 less in his wallet to boot. Fail.

      I could just imagine the hassles one will go through with the TSA.

        TSA loves my Keyport... and so do I. I've been through the airport many times and never had a problem.

          That's good to hear. I've heard horror stories about TSA pulling passengers aside b/c they thought the new at the time car switch blade key was a weapon.

      How difficult is it to remove a key in an instance where you loan your car to someone and need your house key?

        Very easy, you just take off the back cap and they come right out.

      Keyport doesn't really seem to be doing well, they have caught attention, but the price point is so high they clearly missed their target. I think a base price of 30$ is what it should have been. They also seem to be doing NOTHING in-house (hence the expensive add-ons) and you need to return it to just replace the battery of the flash light... WTF are they thinking. Whoever is running the place is running to the ground, great advertiser but bad business choices.

      This might have been a good idea 20 years ago. Now? I don't know. How many keys do you actually have to carry everyday? I'm sure there is a (small) market for these keys, but it is not a must have technology and it this day and age if you're going to develop technology like this it has to be a "must have" or a "want badly" product. I don't think this hits that mark.

      Kinda expensive, but pretty cool. Would keep me from worrying about my phone screen from getting scratched.
