Bottle opener with an LED light! Looks like Gerber's gonna try to stay in the keychain market. :think:

Who's gonna get one?
I probably will... and never use it. I'm a sucker for gadgets!

So what crappy keychain gadgets do you fall for and what's your favorite (not including one-piece tools)? :D

I've a SwissTech Utilikey and Transformer Xi. The Xi fell apart a few days after purchase and I couldn't be bothered with warranty or return. I do like the Utilikey, however, though I believe it could be better with an aide for opening (which I believe they added to the newer models).

Think that's the idea of it though. Might replace my Photon II on the keychain, I'd have to see the size of it, and I need a side view. =S

I think it's just a small gadget to look cool while opening your beer, ya know? Atleast I know some people who'd love this as a gift. :D

Goes great with a Classic/Esquire too!

We saw those at SHOT this year as well and were very impressed with them.  The head flashlight guy, Ben Nyssen put those together and was carrying around a prototype with a glow in the dark insert, which Bob and I were drooling over!

It's a pretty simple idea- folded sheet metal in a bottle opener shape with a silicon insert holding the LED components.

Hmm, what about the fears of lead paint and other toxicities in the beer, then? >.>
