     what better place to put you 500 dollar phone, then right next to the mouth of a bottle of pressurized liquid, while your likely drunk. also, i dont think it is a good idea to use the iphone as a lever, that is not what they are made for.

    Typical product of inventors disease: combining things that have no synergy at all. Combining two random things does not make you an inventor, if you style it up (like this one) it is still a quite useless product.
    Real inventions solve one real world problem and solve it good. There is no real problem called ‘opening a bottle with your iphone’ /methinks, nor ‘holding your iphone in the same hand while opening a bottle’.
    It looks sleek though.
