So it’s time for the weekend and with this post I can combine some content about alcohol and gagdets. The Opena Case for the iPhone 4 is a case with a integrated bottle opener. Not the cheapest one, but I guess it’s worth the money for some of you.
The ‘Opena’ was designed and developed by Rob Ward and Chris Peters, two good mates who like to make things happen. Chris is an Industrial Designer who runs his own product design business. Rob is an idea’s man and has a knack for online sales and marketing. Together they combined their powers to make the Opena a reality.
Originally launched on Kickstarter in June 2011 it received huge interest and quickly jumped to 50% funding in its first week. Word quickly got out and it wasn’t long before the Opena was showing up on design and gadget blogs in Australia, America, France, Japan, and Russia! 100% funding was achieved on Monday the 27th of June 2011 and the project finished on the 8th of July.
Beside a trailer, those guys behind the project also released a nice parody about those “If you don’t have an iPhone…” commercials.
