Opena Case, the bottle opener/case for the iPhone 4
by Mark R
We have discussed the Opena Case for the iPhone 4 before, and I have recently had a chance to try one out for myself.
The Opena case is supposedly “the world’s first iPhone 4 case with a slide out bottle opener”. This isn’t the first time that I have tried out a bottle opener that is also an iPhone case. I remember one that I tried out at a CTIA that had an app with it that would do a programmable sound effect when you opened a bottle.
The protective PC/ABS hard case has an integrated slide out stainless steel bottle opener, and I found that it slides in and out quite well. This feature makes it really stand out amongst iPhone 4 cases/bottle openers, and I wonder if there will be more like them in the future.
I can’t help but wonder if iPhone 4/4S cases will have more strange accessories like this. It seems like one could put a screwdriver set, retractable knife, and other fold-out tools on them. Then our iPhone cases will be nothing more than Swiss Army Knifes.
Anyway, if you want to get in on this year’s novelty gift, head on over to the Opena Case site and lay down $39.99 AUD for it. It comes in black or white, but the white one probably won’t be available until after the holidays.
