Automatic Needle Threader

Threading needles can be difficult for people, blind or not. Here's a nifty tool to get the job done. You put a needle in one of the little funnels (eye down), drop the thread over the slot next to the funnel, and press a button. The thread is pushed through the eye of the needle and it comes out the other side of the funnel. I love it, it's so simple and yet ingenious and can save so many people a lot of trouble.
