I'm sorry for making fun of people for spending gobs of money hiring a team to name something.  The price for their services is justified.

Wasn't that thing the primary melee weapon in Bioshock Infinite?

That is a cool product though.

Well, I know what I'm making next Saturday.

When did China join TF?
Patent pending man, give America a chance.

I'm making it for myself, not for sale.

If it's patent pending that means there's scale prints for me to work off of.

You don't have to pay royalties if you're making it for yourself using your own resources.

Nicely done.

Look at the greedy capitalist.  "I got mine, screw you guys."  If this were China we'd all get a gropener.  I hate this country.

If this were china we'd all be MAKING them to sell to the capitalist countries. Considering they'd probably sell for a month's pay, we ain't getting crap.

(ok fine, if you pay for the materials I'll cover spindle time and make one for you too)

If I ever lose an arm, I will look into it. Until then I will use the flat one that fits nicely into my pocket.

Quite frankly, this looks no easier or better than a normal bottle opener.

My lighter fits in my pocket and has the added function of being able to create fire.

I call it... the flopener.
 
2013-07-27 11:21:04 AM  
I wonder why it doesn't show the gropened bottle going up to the mouth. Think that giant palm claw clutching the cap gets in the way?

My church key still works.
If I saw  in the check out aisle tho, I'd probably buy one.
 
2013-07-27 12:57:53 PM  
I like the emphasis on keeping the cap flat

/they do fly better that way
 
2013-07-27 01:04:08 PM  
If you are opening one, there is no real need for speed. If you are opening many, the fact that cap remains magnetted to the opener is going to get in the way.

Good for bottlecap collectors as well.

This device looks like it'd work really well for people who have difficulty grasping regular bottle openers. I have a dear friend who deals with occasional arthritis pain in her hands, and this would greatly improve her quality of beer-and-barbecue life.

I opened my last beer with a lighter.

The fact that it's magnetic so it will stick to the 'fridge is a nice touch, but I used to just attach a church key to a string and tie it to the handle of the 'fridge.  Never lost that opener - until I moved.

After several decades of drinking beer, I have enough openers to supply a small army of drunks.  If I misplace one, I'll probably trip over another soon enough - or there's always a lighter handy.

Everything's obsolete, man. Name ONE THING that is still relevant from my Dads time (that would be YOUR grandfathers time). His zippo? His record player? His pron?

I can dig it...  lots of surface area for printing a logo as well.

I see a lot of questionable bottle opener ideas in my field of work. But as said earlier, ditch the magnet and it would be good for high volume popping.

these are fun and easy to make...

"Think back. Back to the hour I created you. What happened then?"

"You were drinking beer," Joe said faintly. "You had trouble with the can opener. You said you were going to build a bigger and better can opener. That's me."

Gallegher nearly fell off the couch. "What?"

The robot walked over, picked up a can, and opened it with incredible deftness. No beer squirted. Joe was a perfect can opener.

"That," Gallegher said under his breath, "is what comes of knowing science by ear. I build the most complicated robot in existence just so--" He didn't finish.

I never understood the need for bottle openers, other than for people with arthritis.

Just learn how to open a beer with another beer. Get good at it. When you get to your last beer, almost anything in your kitchen drawer will work, if leveraged correctly.

well if you are comparing drinking beer, with chain smoking.. .I can get behind that.. one should always be able to get into a bottle of beer, or a can of food. Leverage is usually the motivaitive force...

However, I will counter that your ability to utilize found objects to open a bottle of beer runs parallel to the persons who invent various objects to get into those bottles. . You invent, they invent... got it?

but here is the thing... these objects are patentable, and marketable.  from day one when man kind figured out a way to put beer into a container, they figured out a way to distinguish one particular maker of beer from another on that container, and, in the numerous kinds of containers, and their closures, they made sure to provide the end customer a way to get through that closure, and to make sure you don't forget, they put their name on that tool.

at the end of the day, yes, we can all turn a skull into a bong if need be... that's not the point.. the point is to create a nifty thing that you can turn into a piecec of marketing material... this guy is not going to make a fortune selling these things individually, you make that fortune, by selling thousands at a time imprinted with whatever brand or logo that somebody wants to stick on it.

its a piece of marketing schwag that you give away.

I have never had any trouble opening any alcohol container.

As someone who's lost a lot of function in my right arm due to a spine injury, I'm looking forward to this.

//my fossil collecting days are over. I have a big sad.

Perfect for Farkers that enjoy drinking beers and jacking off to porn.  I don't usually let those streams cross, but now . . .
