    Default Intoxicase: Beer Connoisseurs and Spoiled College Kids Rejoice



    Successful products usually solve a real and obvious consumer problem/need, which means the Intoxicase should be sweeping across the country’s college campuses any day now.

    The bottle-opening case has been done before, but not like this. The Intoxicase comes in two flavors, the orgininal and the Intoxicase+. The original Intoxicase has rather pocket-unfriendly looking bottle opener wleded onto the back of the iPhone 4/4S case. Apparently “hundreds of design and experiment hours” went into the patent pending design. Either way, it lookes functional, but rather uncomfortable.

    The Intoxicase+ on the other hand has a smal collapsible “reach-out” bottle opening mechanism built into the back of the case. The user can simply pull the mechanism out, and push it back in flush with the case, making for much more pocket friendly design.

    The Intoxicase companion app can keep track of how many bottles you’ve opened (and presumably consumed), find your car, call you a cab, play music while opening a bottle, and instantly share with your “social network” how much of an alcoholic you are by posting/tweeting each bottle popped.

    The accompanying app is actually pretty slick, and provides users with a breakdown of total beers “tossed so far” and beers “sipped today.” It even breaks down your drinking habits via beer selection and presents in in percentages and nice looking charts so you know whether you’re a microbrew or domestic connoisseur. The app provides enough functionality that it’s worth the download even without the case.

    Intoxicase and Intoxicase+ are available here for $35 and $45 respectively, although the Intoxicase+ is available for pre-order at $35 for a limited time.

    Absolutely ridiculous. "and instantly share with your “social network” how much of an alcoholic you are by posting/tweeting each bottle popped" What a great way to ensure you don't get hired for that next job should your employer check you out on social media. Maybe they can figure out a way for the phone to take a picture of the beer labels too? Have a contest for most exotic beers consumed.

    It's unfortunate that in the US they are so uptight about beer and alcohol.

    Or has an actual job and uses it for work.

    Or has an actual job and finally goes "I can own an Apple product, LOOK!"

    But those kinds of people, I've noticed, don't usually drink anyway.

    "It all started on a dark cold night"....really?? Who cares what the night was like?? I bet most people drink beer indoors at a house or apartment, and if they don't it's not hard to bring a bottle opener. The idea is alright, but I wouldn't want my iPhone being passed around at a party. Even if you only used it for yourself you still wouldn't use it that often, unless you're an alcoholic. I just don't see the point in spending that amount of money on something like that. You could easily buy a cheap opener for your key ring or something. I guess someone might enjoy it though.

    Who leaves their profile viewable to potential bosses? I don't have one FB friend from work. I keep my play and my money separated.

    Spoiled college kids? Really? I have an iphone, ipad, and a macbook air THAT I PAID FOR MYSELF. That doesn't make me spoiled means I work hard to go to school and also work to afford the things I want at the same time.

    Who would wanna buy a iPhone case with a beer opener? Seriously people, it's not easy enough having one on your keychain, but on back of your phone?having a credit card holder I can put up with, this is just worthless.

    If I buy one of these I have to admit I drink enough to warrant it. I'd rather keep using a bic. I don't smoke, but a cigarette lighter is way less conspicuous than this.
