The Coolest Cooler Around - by Ryan Grepper At coolestkickstarter.com
Coolers (are) were one of those rare items that did not change much over the past 30 years of technological advancements!
But that’s over! Ryan Grepper’s Coolest Cooler is set to bring the classic outdoors chillers to the 21st century! After an earlier unsuccessful crowdfunding try back in December 2013, Grepper improved the Coolest Cooler, added new features, redraw it’s outer design and brought it back to Kickstarter!

As of today (that’s 37 days before the project’s end), the Coolest Cooler pledged $6.9 million US (about 140 times more than what Grepper was looking for)!!! That’s the third most funded project ever (after the Pebble with 10.2 million and the Ouya Video Game Console with 8.6 million) and still has 37 days to go!!! Amazing, isn’t it?

Let’s see what makes The Coolest so cool that everyone wants to have one! Here’s a bullet-list of features:

  • 2 x 5V USB chargers (1A and 2.1A charging power), perfect for charging tablets, smartphones and other USB powered gadgets
  • Removable waterproof Bluetooth speaker so you can enjoy your favorite music with your friends
  • Enjoy cool drinks with the built in ice crushing blender
  • Internal LED light to help you spot your drinks during night parties
  • Easy transportation system with gear tie-down and extra wide wheels for easy moving in sand and difficult terrains
  • Bottle opener
  • Incorporated essentials (reusable plates, a ceramic knive) and a cooler split lid to divide drinks and easily store eyes.
  • At last, but not the least … IT”S COOL!!!

The Coolest Cooler is in project mode at Kickstarter and you can get one for $185 (that’s $115 savings over the future regular retail price). Estimated delivery for February 2015.

Let’s hear you in the comments. What’s your take on the Coolest Cooler? Will you get one?

Marc Kreger The Tetris T-Shirt (You Can Actually Enjoy A Quick Game On This One)!
Remember Tetris?
The coolest game around 30 years ago?

Game enthusiast Marc Kerger surely remembers it! For the game’s 30st anniversary (back on June 6th) Marc took a regular t-shirt, decorated it with some Tetris game design elements (to make it look cooler), 3D printed the main game’s compartment, inserted two Adafruit controllers, 128 LED’s and 4 AA batteries and made the first ever playable Tetris T-Shirt.
Watch him play a quick game in the attached video!

ALSO CHECK the Big Hand Printed T-shirt and the Official Marvel Iron Man 3 LED Light-Up T-Shirt we featured earleir.

This cool t-shirt is not available for sale and Kerger does not provide any instructions on how to make your own! But, if you want to give it a try and mingle with the components hoping to replicate his success, start by checking out this Instructables project which served his a start base for the project.

CreoPop - The Cool Ink 3D Pen
Most 3D pens out-there work based on the simple principle of melting material and letting users “draw” layer over layer, building 3D shapes. The ABS or PLA plastics used in conventional 3D pens melt at around 482 degrees Fahrenheit (about 250 degrees Celsius), which makes it difficult to be used in homes, with kids or pets around and requires increased attention in handling them to avoid accidents.

ALSO CHECK the Structure Sensor – The iPad 3D Scanner and these 3D Printers we featured earlier.

The CreoPop 3D Pen is designed to overcome the downsides of classic 3D pens. While the “drawing” process is similar, the CreoPop uses light sensitive ink which is solidified nu a built-in UV light generator. Other than the obvious safety advantages, the CreoPop is powered by a built-in rechargeable battery which allows it to be used in a cordless way and has the ability to 3D print in multiple colors, based on the used inks.

The ColorPop is in project mode over at Indiegogo and you can secure one at an early bird price f $99 US. The delivery is scheduled for March 2015.
