The Coolest cooler is hottest ice box ever invented

Apparently the world is ready for a better cooler.

Have you see the Coolest? If you haven’t yet, you will soon.

The Coolest is a cooler with a blender, bluetooth speaker, LED light and a half dozen other fancy and useful features.

Ryan Grepper of Portland created the idea and went looking for money on Kickstarter. And he found it. Oh boy, did he find it.

Grepper set his goal at $50,000. Now, a week in and with 45 days still to go, he has more than $4.8 million pledged.

Yes. $4.8 MILLION.

So, get ready to see these coolers at every picnic and campground from now until forever.
