ASAP / Key

ASAP
ASAP

Key with a handle make it more easier to turn, while the volume becomes larger. One key cannot be a problem, but a set of keys must cause a trouble. Thus a question comes out - why don't we just discard the handle as it's not necessary?
This key design, ASAP (As Small As Possible), uses the key ifself to be the handle. When two keys come together and form a certain angle, one key will be the handle of another. The keys are combined as building block, and stick together by magnetic force from the root part, which means we even don't need a key chain.
Additionally, they are distinguished by the color of their root part.
