Back in July we reported on a Kickstarter project called the Coolest. It’s basically a cooler that comes with a speaker, blender, and USB charger all built into the cooler itself, thus making it a perfect item to bring with you during the summer to the beach, the park, or simply in your backyard while you have a BBQ.
It’s a novel idea but apparently people love novel because the Coolest managed to raise enough money to become the third most funded Kickstarter project. However it seems that the Coolest has moved onto bigger things and can now claim to be the most funded Kickstarter project in history.
The Kickstarter campaign has 2 days left in its funding and it has since managed to raise a whopping $10,804,373 at the time of writing. It has managed to surpass the likes of the Pebble smartwatch which used to hold the title at $10,266,845. Now we’re not sure what the attraction is about the Coolest, but it certainly seems to have piqued the interest of many backers.
There is still time for those who are thinking about getting their hands on the device. A pledge on Kickstarter of $185 will nab you the Coolest upon its successful funding and production, but if you were to wait, you would have to pay around $300 for the final product which you should be able to find in shops or on their website in the future.
