It's no secret that we have a soft spot for awesome bottle openers, and its obvious that the creators of the JackHawk 9000 Bottle Opener Sunglasses ($TBA) do too. Unlike all the other sunglasses you’ve spent a fortune on, these are constructed from high-grade titanium, so they wont break or bend. The coolest part, obviously, is that these bad boys will pop a top on a cold brew, meaning you’re literally wearing your bottle opener wherever you go. With that kind of stylish, bottle-opening power, it is quite possible that women will want you and men will want to be you, thus changing your life forever. At the very least, they don’t look bad. Head on over to Kickstarter and pledge now so we can make this bad-ass invention a reality. Enjoy.
