About this project

OP is the gadget created as an ideal solution for any problems that trouble all of the everyday beer-consumers. It’s not so easy to sip a beer in a quiet way in fact, and though it clears your mind, it activates your hands! Therefore, a lot of simple ordinary actions, like taking a selfie with friends, writing a message, eating a sandwich while you are walking or lighting a cigarette, could turn into a mad venture! And it’s now that Op lets you win this battle!

 OP consists of three essential parts: a clip, a docking and a bottle opener. The clip and the docking are made of plastic, while the bottle opener is made of steel. In addition to these three elements, Op has also two magnets set on the back of the clip, necessary to support the bottle opener in a balanced position.

Op is very simple to use: the docking must be caught at the neck of the bottle (figure a) and the clip with the logo must be fixed in the trousers’ belt (figure b) . Then, after every sip, you can block the bottle to the clip on the belt, using the docking on its neck. As you can see, it’s a simple but efficacious mechanism (figure c). In this way, whenever you want, you can take again your bottle and drink easily (figure d).

The steel bottle opener located behind the clip makes this gadget multifunctional. To use it, you have only to pick it from the clip, to insert the beer’s cap in it and at least just lever. After you’ve uncorked the bottle, it must be replaced behind the clip: it will be easy to insert it and never lose it by the 2 magnets.

Once you’ve finished the beer, the docking could be removed from the neck of the bottle just pushing the 2 wings and enlarging it just enough to put it out. Then, it must be caught at the clip just upturning the opened- ending part of the docking and pressing in such a way that the inner part of the docking can be caught to the round shape of the clip, corresponding with the logo.

The locking mechanism between dockings and clips can seem strange while you are using Op, because of the round shape of the joint. Actually it is a proper game that allows to swing the beer when you perform actions like sitting, leaning forward, crouching and so on. In this way, the bottle won’t stay always straight and won’t pour its contents on the ground.

We tested the strength and versatility of OP and its two attachments, using various types of bottles, cans of different dimensions and unusual objects. All this to show that OP - Beer gadget was designed to best meet your needs.

In the Deluxe edition, in addition to the OP’ s basic version, you will receive a second docking in order to use OP with the cans.

The operation is simple: you have only to apply the hook to the can’s highest border just pressing slightly from the top as long as you listen a click. The whole can be fastened to the belt by the OP’s clip.

Once you’ve finished your drink, the docking must be removed from the can and the OP’s clip can be embedded in it in such a way as to can keep it in a pocket or in a bag without the risk of losing its various components. The colors’ range includes all the 8 tonalities of OP-beer gadgets.

Stabilized the OP’S starting idea, the design process starts, having as first step the study of the form by some sketches, an important way to refine its design in a short time.

The first prototypes are been realized by a 3D modeling program and then printed by the 3D FDM printer(Fused Deposition Modeling) in different colors and with different plastic materials, like PLA, ABS and PET.

By the 3D printing it has been possible to realize in a short period of time various prototypes used to test the form and its different functionalities that, step by step, turned into the final ones.

During the second prototype’s phase, in order to obtain an high quality of printing, we have used a 3D SLA printer (Stereo Litographic Apparatus ) that utilizes some particular resins to print at a detail’s quality equal to 25 micron .

OP is available in various versions: black, blue, orange, red, purple, gray, white and green.

OP is a little and compact gadget thought for a superior comfort and a bigger stability during its employment, with its weight equal to 32 g. and its size equal to 7cm x 4 cm x 3 cm.

When you select a Perk, please, remember that the customers duties, if provided, are at the expense of the addressee. 

Thank you so much for having a look at our project!!! 

And remember: if we don’t reach our goal, we won’t get funded, and no one will use OP-beer gadget! So, please, share it with your friends and your family!!!
