The BOx app will sync your opener to the internet which will unlock the limitless features of your device. The BOx app will be available on both iOS and Android stores.
In 3 simple steps
Simply select your group of friends from your favourite chat platform. The next time you open a bottle, BOx will send our special “Smart Cheers” algorithm, wherever they are, regardless of distance from a good cold beverage. The “Smart Cheers” algorithm uses time, location, frequency, and other factors blended in with our own special sauce to keep your selected friends updated wherever they are!
We are currently developing these sharing features over Slack and Facebook Messenger.
By default every time a message is sent out you will receive a notification for you to give it a final OK and make sure the sharing is under your control , unless you feeling adventurous then you can set the automatic mode on ;)
BOx LEADERBOARD AND SAFE DRINKING
The BOx app keeps track of the bottles you've opened. You'll get rated and ranked alongside your friends!
But this is only the beginning for the BOx app. We will add safe drinking behavior features that you can activate. They will help you remember how many bottles you opened during a period of time, and most importantly Never Drink and Drive !
SHARE AND DRINK WITH CARE
The current BOx design is the culmination of 18 months, 6 prototypes, countless tests and trials, TENS of broken bottles, 3 white nights, and 2 injured fingers.
We believe we've finally hit the pinacle of design and implementation with the current iteration of the BOx. Our fingers agree. That being said, we are committed to continual iteration and improvement. Perfection comes at a cost, and we aim for nothing less!
BOx is a personal matter to us, Although we're spread over 3 continents, It saved a friendship. For anyone who has a close friend traveling or family living in a different state or country, One of the best moment is receiving a spontaneous message from the person you care for, This is the essence of BOx . Now help us make BOx a reality so no one else has to ever suffer again from having that last beer alone :) Cheers !

Risks and challenges
As with any new product, there is always the risk of parts
malfunctioning. We've been fine-tuning our design over the past 18
months to minimize this, and are confident that the current iteration
of the BOx should be completely problem-free.
We are working with well-established suppliers and are implementing
several phases of quality assurance and testing to make sure the quality of the BOx cannot be questioned!
The BOx App will undergo constant iterations and improvements. The User
Interface is currently undergoing testing, we plan on adding
other social features, and our SMART algorithms will be growing
with us and evolving to remain fresh and exciting!
We are very confident in our ability to deliver the best smart bottle
opener. We came to kickstarter because we need help in making our vision a reality. We need you to talk to us! Tell us what you like, what you
don't like, and what you'd like to see! Let's build this together, for
all of us, and the let's share a beer together!
