Bottle Opener Uses WiFi to Make Your Friends Jealous
Look, sometimes it’s fun to make our friends jealous. Like when we’re on vacation, we might send our co-workers a picture from the beach, just so they see how much fun we’re having rather than being in the office. Or maybe we’re just jerks.
But, for those who think like we do, this new bottle opener uses WiFi to let users show they’re friends when they’re cracking open a cold one.
According to Metro UK, the Bottle Opener X features a wooden and steel exterior, and a WiFi connected key that connects to social media platforms. When users pop their caps off, it will alert the users’ friend groups of choice to provide a bit of good-natured ribbing, and maybe provide a bit of fear of missing out (or “FOMO,” as the kids say) for their friends.
The item first appeared on Kickstarter, after the company Hikami wanted to raise $15,000. As of printing, the project has raised more than $19,000. It currently retails for $35.
With all of the WiFi-enabled products that we see in the promotional space these days, this would be a perfect fit for vacation destinations, hotels or breweries. What’s wrong with showing your friends how much fun your having every now and then?
