The Smartphone Side ‘Instakick’ Doubles Up as a Bottle Open

Think of the ‘Instakick’ like a mini bike kickstand: an adjustable titanium stand that supports your iPhone, iPad mini or smartphone when you don’t want to. Designed by Scott Snell and Rob Everest, the ‘Instakick’ is a small piece of curved metal with an extension that slides into your phone’s audio jack and holds up your phone to your preferred angle. Available in a multitude of bright neon colors, you can watch movies, download music and read ebooks completely hand-free. Helpful, eh?

The coolest part? Because of the ‘Instakick’s' curved jack, it can actually double up as a bottle opener. Picture it now: you’re having some beers with friends and you have a YouTube video to show them: open up everyone’s beers, set up the video, lean it on the ‘Instakick’ and volia! Did I mention it comes on a convenient key chain?
