For that matter we compiled below the coolest functional cufflinks we found around! Check them out after the break and let us know what’s your favorite pair of cufflinks!

While everybody goes crazy with multi-purpose smartwatches that track calories, evaluate sleep and fitness and act as a handy interface for your smartphone, Leatherman decided to improve the classic good ol’ wristwatch in a different direction, by transforming it into a super-multi-tool ready to give you a hand when the situation requires it!
The Leatherman Thread QM1 Multi-Tool Watch is an interesting concept which combines a Swiss-made timepiece (quartz movement, rotating bezel, 200m water resistant, scratch resistant sapphire crystal) with Leatherman’s innovative Tread multi-tool bracelet. The wristwatch is TSA compliant (you can wear it in an airplane) and comes with an impressive warranty of 25 years. The Thread bracelet, the coolest part of the watch, it’s fully adjustable 9by adding or removing links), it’s made of 17-4 Stainless Steel and combines 7 unique pieces which contain not less than 20 individual tools – a cutting hook, a bottle opener, an oxygen tank wrench, a carbiade glass breaker, screwdrivers (1/4″, 5/16, 1/8, 3/32″ and #1 Philips), box wrenches (10mm, 3/8″, 5/16″), hex drive (1/4″, 3/16″, 5mm, 6mm), a #2 square drive, a 1/4″ socket drive and a pick/SIM card tool! Just imagine the possibilities!
The Leatherman Thread QM1 Multi-Tool Watch will be available for purchase in the Fall of 2015 and will set you back ~$500-$600 US.
Either you’re going out with friends, heading to work in the early morning or partying late at night, shopping or enjoying a meal, snowboarding or having a a cold beer on hot sunny afternoon there’s one piece of gear you always have on you – your smartphone! And that’s perfectly normal – just think about it – your bellowed iPhone replaced most gadgets you carried in your backpack just 10 short years ago! It replaced your GPS unit, your MP3 player, your reading book, your newspaper, your photo camera and video recorder and, given the traction virtual wallets such as Google Pay, Apple Pay and Amazon Wallet get, it’s on its sure way to replace your whole wallet in a couple of years!
So, if you already have your phone always on you, why not improve it even more and give it new powers? Bellow you have a collection of the coolest iPhone cases around designed to improve even further your iPhone. Most cases I featured bellow are available for all iPhone models – simply go to the product page to check the availability for your iPhone model.
Enjoy … and make sure you you share this post with your friends! I am sure they’d love want to supercharge their bellowed iPhone too!
Here at CoolPile.com, we’re big fans of cool multipurpose tools. Usually they’re small enough to be carried unnoticed in your jeans pocket, they’re cool (hey, how many of your friends have one on them right now?) and they help during the day accomplishing small annoying tasks.
As we already saw, played and featured a lot of multi-tools here, we were (almost) convinced that there’s not much out-there that can still impress us! Well, as always, there’s still something else crazier, cooler and better than what we saw before. This time we’re speaking about the Columbia River Knife & Tool (CRKT) 9070 Guppie Multi-tool.
Designed to easily fit in your pocket (so you have no excuse of leaving it home!!!) the CRKT 9070 features a wide array of tools to make your life easier wherever you roam: a 1/2-in wrench, a 2-in (5cm) high carbon stainless steel blade which can be opened with one hand, an universal screwdriver with 4 screw driving bits included (two of each Philips and standard sizes), the included bit-carrier also sports a LED flashlight, 6-point interchangeable hex drive, and a carabiner for easy hanging and carrying (doubles as bottle opener).
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
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?
He was always able to pull a quick one and get rid of the army of bad people following him around in seconds! Part of his cool escapes was his brilliant mind (read the director’s brilliant mind) and part of it were various cool gadgets he had on him.
I bet if MacGyver was still around, the Kool Tool would be one of his main clothing accessories!
The Kool Tool Belt from Bison Designs is made to help you in various unpredicted situations life throws at you. The multitool stays quiet, hidden as a belt buckle waiting for you to request it’s assistance. The multitool buckle is made of strong steel and features three screwdrivers (Philips, large and small), three sizes wire stripper, a bottle opener, SAE and metric hex tools and a ruler (metric and standard). The actual belt is a black 44 mm ribbed webbing belt which goes well with jeans, dock or any other sports/casual pants.
