A Fresno State grad and three current engineering students are hoping to launch just that with the unveiling of CarbonForce and the Kickstarter campaign raising money to pay for manufacturing it. The phone case is made from carbon fiber — used in airplanes and high-end bicycles — which is stronger than steel. They have the prototype, they just need the money to start making it.
You can watch their video from Kickstarter below. (The entertaining part is at the end, where they pop open not beers, but Cokes.) If they get the $12,000 they’re looking for, college students everywhere will be able to pop open a brewski without even leaving their desks.
OK, I’m exaggerating a bit with the drinking emphasis. The inventors tell me they aren’t even big drinkers. But what do you think, blogland? Greatest invention since sliced bread? Appalling instrument of out-of-control drinking? But most importantly, would you buy it?
