The USB stick CO from TrekStore combines a USB thumb drive with a bottle opener. I’m not sure if this should be filed under “Why didn’t I think of that?” or “What were they thinking?”

The USB stick CO is a mobile data storage device in a solid, brushed aluminium housing. It is special because it incorporates an extra bottle opener function combining practical data storage with a thirst-quenching aid that is always to hand. The USB stick CO has a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 connection for extra-fast data transfer (read rate: 25 MB/s, write rate 12 MB/s). It is bootable, pre-formatted and ready for immediate use without a driver. The USB stick CO is suitable for Windows? 2000, XP, Vista, Mac? OS X and Linux? from Kernel 2.6.x. It is available with 1, 2, 4, 8 and 16 GB of memory.

I suppose it makes since if you normally carry a thumb drive and a bottle opener to combine the two. It would be nice if it had a place to attach it to a keychain. It will cost between EUR 6.99 and 49.99 (~$10-$70) and will be available in October 2008.
