Bluetooth iPhone and Android Tempo Monitor By BlueMaestro
A while back we featured the Blue Maestro Tempo Monitor. Today, we’re back with news from Blue Maestro – they upgraded both the monitoring device as well as their mobile apps, making them even cooler!
For first, the monitoring device, which used to track only temperature, now also tracks barometric pressure stats as well as humidity info. On the software side, both Android and iOs apps got redesigned, making user interaction even easier.

The upgraded Tempo Monitor connects to your devices via low energy Bluetooth 4.0 and iBeacon for iOs gadgets, works up to 165ft (that’s 50 meters) distance, is water and weather proof (which makes in a perfect choice if you want to track outdoors stats), stores historical data for the last 30 days, allows temperature alerts triggered by high and low thresholds and has a battery life of around 12 months.

What I really liked about the Tempo is how simple the setup process is. Simply instal the free iPhone or Android app, turn on the monitor and wait a couple of second for it to automatically connect. That’s it, after a couple of seconds, the barometric pressure, temperature and humidity data starts to download on your phone and displays on the main dashboard.
The Tempo Monitor works locally via Bluetooth and, because of this, does not need to be hooked up to your wireless or wired internet network. Another cool feature is that the unit continues to monitor and track the setup parameters even if you’re not around, allowing you to download the recorded data as soon as you get into the Bluetooth range of the device. Available in white, black, gray and pebble (marble).
Cool, isn’t it? Check out the review video bellow and let me know your thoughts in the comments bellow.

Columbia River Knife Guppie Multi-Tool
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.

ALSO CHECK Mantis – The Keychain Sized 10+ Functions Multitool and Leatherman Crunch Pocket Multitool.

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).

Backpack Cooler Beach Chair Or How Make Your Beach Day Even More Enjoyable
A while back we featured the LoungePac portable beach chair with fridge, umbrella, sound system and many more. The LoungePac is one of the coolest beach chairs we ever spotted!

And, if you like the concept but you want something simpler and lighter, worry not, we have your back covered as always! The Backpack Cooler Chair can be considered a stripped down version of the Loungepac.

The Backpack Cooler Chair only weights 13 lbs (that’s 5.9 KG), sports two shoulder straps that allow you to carry it as a backpack and folds to mere 10″ wide (that’s about 25cm). The chair also sports a removable cooler that attaches to the side armrest and can keep cold up to 24 cans, a 14 1/2″ x 11″ (that’s 37cm x 28cm) foldable table with built in cup holder and expandable fabric shelves, an umbrella securing loop (in case you want to use one), low sidebars to prevent sinking into sand and a handful of external pockets for storing various gadgets and gear. The beach chair‘s structure is made of lightweight powder-coated aluminum and the seat and backrest are made of strong, durable canvas with foam-padded ribs.

What’s your take on the Backpack Cooler Chair? Let’s hear you in the comments bellow …
