After walking the 1.6 million square feet of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and seeing some of the most amazing technology on earth, what was one of the things that impressed us most? The Be a HeadCase iPhone Bottle Opener Case! We absolutely know how bizarre this sounds – picking an iphone case with a bottle opener as a top gadget from CES??? However, this simple device absolutely meets the requirements we set out in our article on what Dads and Moms really want from their gadgets.
Hands On Bottles On With the Be A HeadCase iPhone Case
While we picked the Be A HeadCase case as one of the top gadgets from CES that promise to decrease the chaos in a parent’s life, we held off on making any recommendations until we had a chance to do a full review. We have now had a chance to spend some time with the HeadCase, and in the name of doing the very best and most complete product review possible – we opened many bottles of beer – just because we care about you.
Here is the video of the Be a Head Case iPhone Bottle Opener Case in Action -
Okay, I am a klutz and did spill the beer, but that is only because I was drunk tired. Seriously, I was trying to hold the bottle in such a way so it would look better on video, in real world use, dumping some beer while you open it is not common.
More Proof They Make An App for Everything
There is also an app that you can can download and it will play sounds, music or show a picture every time you open a bottle. The app can also keep a count of how many bottles you have opened. It is a cute app, but my guess is that this will have more appeal to college kids. For Moms and Dads, the fact that the thing you carry with you everywhere (your phone), can now also open a beer (or fancy soda) when you have had a rough day – that is the real appeal.
Conclusions on the Be A HeadCase: Incredibly Simple and Incredibly Effective
There is not much you can say about a bottle opener. There is also not much to say about an iPhone case. However, when you put the two together you have a very simple and elegant gadget that just works to makes a parent’s life a little easier.
We have a few small complaints – the Be a Headcase only comes in two colors – black and pink. In addition, the case does not seem to snap together in as solid a way as the iFrogz cases – but these are really minor issues. The case sells for about $20 and to me that is a small price to pay to know that you will never have to try to pry a bottle open with your keys again.

FULL DISCLOSURE: We were sent a case to use and review. We were paid absolutely nothing for doing this review. We do not make any money if you decide to buy Be A HeadCase Case. However, if we see you with a HeadCase and a couple of extra bottles of a fine micro brew, remember what we teach our kids – sharing is fun. This is a real review, by a real Dad!
