December 5, 2008 Despite an Amazon-led initiative to rid the world of the frustrating (and dangerous) "clamshell" packaging we all love to hate, you're likely to receive or give at least one item this Christmas that's trapped behind a near-impenetrable clear plastic exterior. Enter the Pyranna.
Just clamp and slide the Pyranna along the edge of the pack, and free your newly-acquired gadget in seconds - with the instruction manual and all your fingers intact.
