How would you like to open your beer with your iphone ?
Thanks to two Australian entrepreneurs, you will soon be able use it to open a bottle of beer by way of the “Opena,” a hard plastic case that fits over the iPhone and is equipped with a slide-out bottle opener.
“We’re always out at friends’ houses and so on, and in some cases you may not have your keys on you… So we thought, why don’t we attach a bottle opener to an iPhone case? We always have our phones on us.”
Working from three basic rules — the case had to be slim, there had to be no chance of the opener scratching the iPhone, and the opener had to work without putting any pressure on the phone — the two developed a prototype.
Testing including running through what a promotional video termed “the worst case scenario” in which a friend has shaken up the beer and it foams over. The case — and the iPhone — came through unscathed every time.
