Family of Flight Attendant May Have Created World's Best Itty Bitty Bottle Opener

We’ve got a great little gadget for our flight attendant friends, and for everyone else, really. A new Kickstarter project is looking for funds to produce a clever bottle opener, and its all designed by the family of a flight attendant (hence the aviation-influenced look).

Apparently all those tiny, airline-size booze bottles are a pain in the neck to open, as the little screw tops just don’t offer enough space to get a good grip for the twisting torque necessary to open them on op. The Mini Opener exists to rescue you from these kind of problems, as it’s the perfect solution for opening mini liquor bottles, cans of soda, and bottles of beer. It’s made in right here in the USA and it's on track to become the next must-have accessory for a properly stocked liquor cabinet.

The bad news is that they didn’t hit their funding goal of $20,000, but the project will continue with updates over on Facebook and their website. Pricing was listed at $18—complete with free shipping—but things could change now that they’re trying to figure out the production and further funding.

We’ve got to say that it looks to be a nifty little gadget, and we’re really in love with the ingenuity and the clever design—the whole thing is shaped like a propeller. We wish them the best as they move forward, and we can only hope the Mini Opener will be in every beverage cart, cooler, and bar sooner rather than later.

Doesn't this already exist?

How is this different from a BevKey? (Aside from the bulky addition of the propeller blades?)
