Bottle Board - A Lot More Than A cool Bottle Opener

There are a couple of cool bottle openers (eg: the CatchDrop, The Atom Key or the Cap Zappa) that surfaced lately on the market. I usually do not have the habit of featuring too many same category items in a short time interval, but this multifunction opener called the The Bottle Board, simply caught my attention. So, here we go, one more cool bottle opener for today!

Apart having a cool, stylish look the Bottle Board comes with some extra features that we are not used to see in a common bottle opener. For example – it can be used as cord fastener (particularly with 550 cord), it features a 2″ x 2″ (that’s about 5cm x x5cm)reflective surface that can be used as pocket mirror or survival tool), you can hook your earphones around it, keep you cash and cards stashed in it, use it as a keychain and, of course, open bottle caps with it (dah!!!) … An all this in the size that fits in your regular wallet.

The Bottle Board comes in two finishes (Chrome with Matte Black and Black Nickel with White Pearl) nicely packed in a laser engraved wooden box and it is available on Kickstarter for a early bird pledge of $29.

DropCatch - The Magnetic Bottle Opener That Takes Care Of The Bottle Cap In Action

Most bottle openers are dedicated to do one thing only – open bottles (dah!!!). One common problem with classic bottle openers is that they are not designed to take care of the caps. So, as you go through the bottles, the caps start piling up and they often end up in hard to reach places (under the sofa, etc…). There are some cool gadgets out there that take in consideration this issue but not many manufacturers offer complete solutions around it.

The DropCatch just got bottle opening to the next level. No longer do you need to hand plastic bags to “catch” the bottle caps when using the wall opener. The new bottle opener manufactured by the guys over at DropCatch is handmade in US and features a powerful high-grade rare earth magnet incorporated in it’s wooden base.
The entire system allows you to open bottles without worrying about the caps. Once the bottle is opened the rare earth magnet takes care of all caps and holds them together on the opener’s base. Cleaning all the caps after a party gets as simple as swiping them down from the magnetic base into a garbage bag.

On the manufacturing side, the DropCatch is made of solid slabs of Walnut and comes in two shapes: The Junior (features a 28lbs pull force magnet which holds up to 15 caps) and the Senior (which can hold up to 52 caps via it’s 60lbs pull force incorporated magnet).

The DropCatch is in project stage at Kickstarter and you get a nice Early Bird pricing for both the Junior and Senior models by supporting it with a pledge.

iPhone Volta Sound Block Amplifies Your iPhone's Sound Naturally - No Electronic Gimmicks Involved

Just like the iBam2, the Volta Sound Block is a passive sound amplifier for iPhone. We call it a passive sound amplifier because no electronics are involved in amplifying the sound. The effect is obtained by the materials and the design used to build the block.

The Volta Sound is a wooden box made of fine, solid Oregon Northwest Alder and a Bison horn. The iPhone stand is padded with wool from Pendleton Woolen Mills to protect the iPhone from scratches and the Bison horn is attached to the box with Neodymium Magnets – which allows easy positioning and transportation while offering a maximum hold power. The Volta Sound Block is made in Oregon-US, ships in a hand printed travel bag, which makes it perfect for a high class gift and it’s available in four wood grains: Dark Native, Light Native, Dark Gray and Light Gray.
