You can do a lot of things with an iPhone, but you can’t use it to open a beer. Two heavy drinking Australians are working to change that.

According to Reuters, the two Australian entrepreneurs are working on a hard plastic case that fits over the iPhone and comes equipped with a slide-out bottle opener. Their name for this device is the “Opena”.

“Basically, Australians are fairly heavy drinkers, as you may or may not know,” said Melbourne-based Chris Peters, an industrial designer who developed the product with Rob Ward, a former toolmaker.
