There are a lot of awesome products that end up on Kickstarter. The funding platform/payment system/social support vehicle has drained our bank accounts in the best way possible, but it’s most effective for a few things: pens, docks and playing cards. Ultraviolet from design house beta17 is our latest pick for “must have deck” because of it’s adherence to modern design aesthetic and its clear sci-fi influence. Plus, we love the color purple. But seriously, if there was a limited-edition Blade Runner deck of cards, we imagine the typography and the design elements would look pretty similar. Each deck is going to be printed by the US Playing Card Company with air cushion finish and performance coating on high quality paper stock.
The Throttle Bottle Opener is a pint-sized beer popper that’s more clever than you realize. While its compact size make it ideal for tossing on a keyring, its miniscule build is only one of the benefits here. Outfitted with a powerful rare earth magnet, each Throttle Bottle Opener easily finds its way to your bottle’s cap. Not only that, you can keep it on the fridge so it’s on hand whenever you pull out a cold one. Then, use it with one hand to open that bottle. Clever, tiny, and incredibly useful.
