There’s about a million and one ways one can open a bottle of beer. Usually these methods arrive at the intended goal: getting beer in your mouth. I’ve busted many cigarette lighters, chipped dozens of counter-top ledges, and even broken keychain bottle openers while in the pursuit of opening a beer bottle. At parties, it is usually my keys that get passed around and misplaced because I am, somehow, the only person who has an opener on them.
So when I found the IndieGoGo page for the GrOpener, I felt that we might have come upon the one tool that we have been trying to create for the past century (or however long capped bottles have been around). Being the guy that has to have all of the cool toys this is the must-have that I sort of have to tell everyone about. Including you. The gist – one handed bottle opening. A marvel of physics.
The first 15 seconds of this video shows it best:
Developed right here in Denver, Mark Manger is running an IndieGoGo campaign as a way to fund preorders for the manufacture of the GrOpener. As of this writing, the campaign is fully funded. More contributions can be made and the supporters will receive GrOpeners in reward.
What disastrous ways have your creative bottle-opening antics ended? Anyone loose an eye? A tooth? Something worse?
