Biwin's USB Drive for Beer Drinkers

Certainly flash drives with integrated bottle openers aren't new. But the Biwin M18 bottle opener flash drive pulls off the concept with minimalist flair.

OEM Biwin's Model #M18 is simply a bottle opener with a USB 2.0 flash drive on the other end. Like practically any other flash drive, it runs out of the box on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. The M18 weighs 18 grams, and is 76 x 33 x 4.5 mm. Obviously, the exposed contacts of the USB plug might prove hazardous to data (and any computer it connects to) and using this flash drive to open beer bottles obviously places it in wet conditions, but it's nothing a well-designed plug cover can't solve.

Will the M18 ever hit the market? It depends. Biwin got a booth at COMPUTEX 2010 to look for interested companies who want to slap their brand on Biwin goods. Here's to hoping they find a buyer!
