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?

Sand-Free Beach Multimat by Cgear - Girl On The Beach And How it Works
There are 2 things than can go wrong when sunbathing on the beach – the beer is not cold enough and the mat is full of sand. Well … there are other things that can wrong too, but none of them competes with these two!

While one can cope with a warm beer (by exchanging it with a colder one), there is not much to do about sandy blankets! Or at least this is what I thought until I felt on the Cgear Sand-Free Multimat.

ALSO READ ABOUT the LoungePac – The Portable Beach Chair Featuring a Fridge, Umbrella And Sound System and The Hula Hoop – The Chanel Beach Bag That Lets You Hang Things On It

The beach mat features a patented dual layer technology which was initially used by military forces. The upper layer of the mat is designed to repel sand and other small objects and lets them drop through to the bottom layer. This second layer not only keeps the sand away from the first layer, but it is also designed to keep beach sand from sticking to the mat! Strong heavy duty D-Rings are attached to all corners to allow users efficient anchoring on windy bitches.

GAEMS G155 Sentry Personal Gaming Environment
Many people know about them, but even more have no idea they exist! If you never heard about gaming environments before, let me put it simple for you: a gaming environment is a complete setup that allows you to play games at home or on the go, independently of any other accessories including external power sources, TV screens, cables, etc …

A while back we wrote about the Gaems Vanguard Halo edition gaming environment and, since then, I received a couple of emails asking about cheaper similar systems. The Gaems G155 Sentry is Vanguard’s younger (and cheaper) brother! The Sentry gaming environment allows you to transform your gaming console into a portable system and enjoy game playing everywhere (think about those mandatory family camping trips you have to join during summer vacations!!!).

The Sentry G155 sports a 15in HD LED display with a 720p resolution (1366x768px resolution), audio output through incorporated stereo speakers or two 3.5mm headphone jacks, is compatible with Xbox 360, 360S and the Slim Version of the PS3 and fits the Carry-On standards for national and international flights.
