At $24.99, it’s perfect for any sports or TV enthusiast who wants interruption free, multiple game/TV watching.

The Story of The Clicker
As with any good idea, the Clicker was inspired by hanging out with friends and drinking a few beers... in Wisconsin. David Dignam, the inventor of the Clicker, was traveling back home to New York from a long Thanksgiving weekend hanging with the guys in a small town in western Wisconsin (hometown to one of the guys). The idea hit him, "why not combine a universal remote control and bottle opener, and have one less thing to have to look for in your own home". Thus, the Clicker was born, the ideal union of two of the most important items in the home: the remote control and bottle opener (for some people).

In reality, the story begins several miles from Wisconsin in Kenmare, Ireland. David was raised on a farm in the small town of Kenmare in Ireland, and he has always been fascinated with design and building. He went on to pursue his passion by studying Civil Engineering at University College Dublin. David then moved to New York, appropriate for someone fascinated with structural design. He eventually started his own construction company, working closely with clients who wanted to be involved in the design of their homes and businesses. His technical expertise as a contractor and engineer has given him an eye for simplicity and functional user-centric design in all areas of life, from architecture to remote controls.

After his inspirational moment in Wisconsin for the remote and bottle opener mash-up, David invested a lot of time and money developing the Clicker over several years, researching and tinkering with prototypes to find the optimum blend of form and function. David wanted the product to be both functional and efficiently designed, not a low quality gimmick. His efforts paid off, and the Clicker was created for all the world to enjoy. David lives in New York with his wife and son.

My Take on the Product
How many of you have found yourself watching a football game on the television, you grab a beer, sit down and then find that the beer that you have is not the kind with the twist off cap? You then get up and then find that you can't find your bottle opener. This is definitely an issue that many people have run into over the years and this product was made to deal with this issue completely.

The idea of this clicker was quite ingenious. I loved the fact that the inventor of this had great insight into what was needed for a guy in his man-cave or wherever he may be sitting. This is not to say that women do not drink beer, as they do, but it still is a product that any man can love.

The product was easy to use and when I tried it on a few bottle (for myself and my friends) I found that it worked well and you can easily toss the remote between people as well and they then can feel in control of the TV, at least for a little while.

The remote itself works well and I had no problem programming it with the different components of my television.

All-in-all, this is a great addition to any man's arsenal and for the price, it is one that I would highly recommend, as it is something that everyone will be talking about!
