Ariff, Ahmad Fairuz and Raja Ahmad Effendi, Raja Ahmad Azmeer and Baharuddin, Nasir (2013) Oryctes Rhinoceros bottle opener. In: Nature's Yield and Wonders of Art (NYAWA)13: Insects. Universiti Putra Malaysia Press, Serdang, Selangor, pp. 114-115. ISBN 9789679603484

Abstract / Synopsis

The bottle opener is a product that functions as a removal of metal bottle caps that usually display simplicity in its design, particularly in the early days it was introduced. At present, most of the design for this product seems to display modern appearance but less consideration in the user comfort. Therefore, a new design of the bottle opener is produced which took consideration not only on the appearance but also the ergonomic aspect that uses plastic together with semi-curve lines providing users a steady thumb and firm hand grip. It is inspired by nature (insect) in which it mimicked the Rhinoceros beetle's body parts.
