Cool, but as someone that spent 2 days cursing ring-shank nails I can only imagine how annoying these would be to undo. :)

Heehee!...last paragraph:

"Before I leave Clemson, I ask Schiff if he sees any downside to his protege's invention. “Homeowners and insurance companies are going to love these nails,” he says. “But contractors are going to hate them, because when they make mistakes, it's not a trivial thing to remove them. Once you nail something together, it's going to stay together."

bummer for them...maybe this will encourage some of them to not go so overboard with the nail gun.
