So there are a few things that every guy holds very close to him: his watch, his shoes, and his wallet. We always keep an eye out for these three things that manage to make an everyday item be turned into a gadget… for guys. We always keep an eye out on Kickstarter for new crowd funding gadgets that apply to one of these three items. That is where we found the Flip N’ Grip wallet which has several layers of “coolness” to it. This amazing wallet is brought to the masses (hopefully if it makes its funding goal) by BJ Minson and Dan Loveridge.
There are more than a few different ways to make a wallet cool. You can simplify it, add gadgets, turn it basically into a Swiss Army knife or you can flip the whole idea on it’s head. That is what Flip N’ Grip has managed to accomplish. One of the main problems of every wallet is the classic issue of trying to pull one credit card out and three others fall to the floor. Not only did they fix that problem but the Flip N’ Grip wallet has actually made the process of pulling the credit card out kind of fun. Let’s be honest though, no wallet will never be fun when your wife asks you for the credit card. Might as well kiss that baby goodbye.
It is also a cool gadget because they have almost turned the art of pulling a wallet out and grabbing a credit card into a show off game. There is video (see below) of people doing all kinds of crazy tricks with the Flip N’ Grip and you have to admit it is actually kind of cool. You might get called a nerd when you break out the double loop flip swoop (we just invented that trick like Rodney Dangerfield in Back to School) but that same person will be jealous of you at the same time.
The Kickstarter page shows that there are a few different options if you are interested in pledging money.
