Kickstarter: cooler bag received $ 10.6 million, breaking Pebble watch record

    Pebble’s smartwatch leadership as a funding champion at the Kickstarter crowdfunding venue has come to an end. And the cooler overthrew them from this position. Yes, an ordinary cooler bag. Rather, it’s not at all ordinary, but with a high-tech bias.

    Coolest Cooler not only keeps food and drinks cold, but also crushes ice like a blender, which guarantees you always a cold cocktail while hiking in nature, works as a speaker system with a Bluetouth interface and charges all your mobile devices via a USB port. And that is far from all that he can do.

    It is also equipped with LED backlighting and a lot of necessary and useful things when driving out of town or to a park of things - a cutting board, a bottle opener and other useful equipment (Full list below).

    All this splendor in attractive orange plasticgathered at the "Kick" from the beginning of a round of financing of $ 10,601,265 for the moment, more than 200 times exceeding the marked target amount of $ 50,000. The fundraising campaign has not yet been completed - there are more than two days ahead and it is possible that the cooler will collect a total of more than 11 million dollars.

    Thus, Coolest Cooler convincingly broke the record of iOS and Android-compatible Pebble watches, which was previously unsurpassed since 2012, with a total of $ 10,266,845.

    A few words about the author of the project. His name is Ryan Grapper, he is from Portland and has been going to this success for 10 long years.

    “Ten years ago, I made a blender from a waste grinder and stuffed an old tape recorder into the refrigerator,” Grapper recalls.

    And now you see how it all turned out.
