Ever been on an endless search for a bottle opener during a big night out? Two Australian entrepreneurs feel your pain and have designed an iPhone case that double as a bottle opener.

The Opena case, billed as the world's first iPhone 4 case with a slide out bottle opener, was designed and developed by Australian pair Rob Ward and Chris Peters.

"If you're anything like us you like to travel light," said the pair on the Opena Web site. "The one thing we always have on us is our phones. The one thing we always seem to be looking for is a bottle opener."

"Some of our friends carry bottle openers on their keys but there are times when you don't always have your keys with you, especially if your having a big night out and might be tempted to drive home," they said.

The founders said they spent a considerable amount of time designing, prototyping and testing their ideas to create a smooth, clean product. They say the thin Opena case will not scratch an iPhone, nor does it require force to open a bottle.

The Opena's slide out bottle opener is manufactured from laser cut stainless steel, while the case itself is made from ABS plastic and has a textured surface finish.

The Opena project was brought about on Kickstarter, a worldwide funding platform for creative projects. The project has so far received 541 backers for a total of $26,737 — well over the original $15,000 goal.

The Opena case will sell for $39.95 and is expected to be available in August, initially though the Opena Web site.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
