Grolsch Brings Non-Compatible Bottleneck-Can Gadget


Just in time for Queens day Dutch beer brewer Grolsch has come with, as it claims, the first "blikbeugel". This little bottleneck can be locked to a can to increase the drinking experience. Initial tests have show that the "blikbeugel" is not compatible with cans of competitor Heineken. Time for some "reverse-engineering" then. Or would that bring DMCA-like issues? (Obviously trying to squeeze in some legal aspects here.)

I have a plastic version of something like this I picked up at a dollar store about a decade ago. Mine is green and has a body basically the same as a bottle but the cap is like a plastic winebottle cap.

It's an old idea that didn't work out in the past.

Why would you want to buy that? The beer would get all foamed up in there. They expect to make a profit with this? And what kind of buttplug would it be? What IS a buttplug, anyway? Why would you want one? And where the hell am I?

I like the part about "no more can taste" in the ebay ad. I wonder how they did that!

At Branko, yeh I finally found my target group. Already did football. Next up, seemingly: the patentability of sexual devices.

nice gadget. But as commented by patrick, a similar device existed a decade ago. I wonder why it did't took off. It seems like a neat gadget to me. Probably it needs a little bit more marketing exposure.
