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

  • 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.

With technology evolving so quickly, things that were modern and fancy yesterday, are already outdated today! Think about all those smartphones, tablets, TV sets, laptops and so on … Manufacturers release newer models with improved tech specs every year, sometimes even twice a year!
As I have a box full of older, outdated gadgets in perfect functioning state, I am always looking around for ways to repurpose and give them a new life! This is how I felt onto the Zmartframe.

Just as the Universal Touch Screen Camera Adaptor For Laptops we told you about earlier, the Zmartframe is designed to turn your old, classic PC screen into a modern screen with touch capabilities.

Available for 19″, 22″ and 24″ screens, the Zmartframe is compatible with Win XP/7/8 PCs an works on a Plug And Play system – attach the frame, connect the USB plug and calibrate the screen the first time you plug it and you’re ready to roll and enjoy 2-point multi touch on your old PC screen! Another cool feature is that the Zmartframe has Android embedded in it! So, without any additional gear, your classic screen can be turned into a modern tablet with instant access to millions of apps from the Google Play store.

Breffo Spiderpodium Universal Smartphone Holder - Car Mount On Ventilation System
A while back we featured the Spiderpodium smartphone holder here on CoolPile.com.
Now we’re back with a full hands-on review, a lot of pictures, a complete review Youtube video as well as with some new thoughts about what is deemed to be one of the most versatile smartphone stands and car holders out there.

First, the Spiderpodium is a bit bigger than I expected based on the pictures I checked on the Breffo.com website. And this is good news, because it offers an even better grip and I was hoping! The smartphone holder sports 8 legs covered in a rubbish material which serve both securing the phone as well as positioning the Spiderpodium on almost any type of surface. The smartphone holder works with all phones up to 5″ including iPhone, Samsung Galaxy S series, LG G series and any other maker/model on the market (if you own a phablet or a tablet, Breffo also has a bigger version of the Spiderpodium available to accommodate your needs), works with GPS units, digital and action cameras, flashlights … you name it!
