The Kickstarter BROpener Project

January 14th - via: businessinsider.com
This is the BROpener, a Kickstarter project by San Francisco design team Matt von Mering and Aaron Avallon. Why We Love It: For your inner frat guy, this domino-shaped bottle opener will allow you to open a beer on literally any stable surface without ruining the edges of your furniture. It's made of 7075 aircraft-grade machine-milled aluminum with a built-in magnet to catch the bottle caps. The BROpener attaches with double-sided tape so you can stick it wherever you want, and when you're ready to remove the BROpener, just twist it sideways to release the tape. (Read More)
