    It's dumb. All the good beers have twist tops. :biggrin5:

    It's clever and they'll sell quite a very at $17; (perhaps the maximum price point for what is basically just a novelty).

    Yeah, right, twist-off tops. ForeverAutumn's pinkies must be much more calloused than mine. What have you been up to, FA? ;)

    It is dumb, to be brilliant it would need a corkscrew on the other side.

    LOL! I actually don't drink beer. Can't stand the stuff.

    I like JohnMichael's idea.

    What I want to know is, for $17, how well does the remote work? If the remote doesn't work right than this is basically $17 for something I can buy at Canadian Tire for 99 cents.

    It is a learning remote, so it shouldn't be too bad. But I agree with Feanor that this is probably more novelty item than functional. But if you add JohnMichael's idea, then that would make it a necessity :D

    The beginning of a swiss army remote. Needs a spoon corkscrew, fork, knife, and something that every now and again tells you to get your lazy ass off the couch and go for a walk. :-)
