Want to open beer bottles with your iPhone? There’s a case for that!
Spicebox launched new iPhone cases called Intoxicase that come with a metallic bottle opener welded at the back, letting you open bottles without carrying an extra accessory.
That’s not where the product’s main selling point lies though. In fact, there are a number of iPhone cases that let you open bottles. Intoxicase’s differentiating factor is its free companion iPhone app, that counts how many bottles you’ve opened and tells you how drunk you are.
The app uses the gyroscope in the iPhone to detect when a bottle is opened, and subsequently updates your “beer log.” It also comes with the standard set of social networking features that let you tell your Facebook friends and Twitter followers, how drunk you are. And in case you’ve had one too many, it also helps you to even call a cab.

Here’s a video which describes the design process of the case:
The narrator in the video says, “iPhone cases are prime real estate for everyday accessories,” and we couldn’t agree more. The fact that your phone is in your pocket everywhere, everytime, has fueled the popularity of apps, and would similarly bring up an vibrant ecosystem of useful iPhone accessories.
The case is available for $35 on the company’s website.
