So I dont want to sound too negative because I love a drink... Why have you made a bottle opener smart? I just am not sure there is a need for it to be connected to the internet and need a battery etc. One handed opening looks cool enough, you could've just made the whole thing have that draw. Im just struggling to figure out why I'd need a wifi connected bottle opener. The problem: my drink is closed and I want to drink it A bottle opener is just a tool to enable me to consume. Its not something people tend to care a lot about or want it to do more (in my opinion). I often open bottles with other bottles/lighters/keys - simples

@bentossell Hey Ben thanks a lot for your comment. What we wanted to create was just a new sharing experience for people while enjoying their beer. Instead of running to pick up their phone and start chatting about it... For us it was not really about the wifi board. We are just 3 good friends that always enjoyed a beer together, with traveling and work we end up most of the time having it alone, and then texting on messenger to each other about that moment.... This is how we came up with the idea about sharing while opening so need to use the phone. But we didnt want just to do a "sharing opener", as you said the first function of the opener is to open a bottle, this is why we wanted to design what we think could be the smoothest way of opening a bottle so we redesigned it as it is with one hand only, carving it from solid wood. This is our intention it might seem abit crazy :) but if you like the design i hope you could support for this on kickstarter will have an option without the board too ;)

@choukarim hmm honestly I'm not too familiar with the situation of opening a beer, picking up my phone and start chatting about it either ;) I think its a cool bottle opener without all the wifi fluff

@kristofertm we always wanted to make sure you keep one hand free :)) (By the way this one based on a real story :) ) Hope you will support us on Friday, and once you get your opener you will share with us your experience ;)

@kristofertm this too – amazing PS skills right here I highly encourage the team behind this product to consider removing wifi functionality. This product could be sold in stores globally, but adding the tech complicates things. Listen to the people!

@jabrueckner @kristofertm Hey there, just to update you we are live and still some early birds left for grabbing :) http://kck.st/1Tpziw9 . We have added the option to buy without the wifi board

Its designed to be the smartest bottle opener. We designed so its feel great when you open your beer. We wanted to make it smart both in the design and with the iOT. So we designed it to work with only one hand, and we fited it with a wifi board. When you open a bottle it will automatically share a "smart Cheers" with your selected friends only .(Its about keeping sharing personal not public). We wanted to make it really beautiful too this is why we hand carved it from solid wood and cased with polished steel
