This Cooler Comes with a Built-In Blender and a Bluetooth Stereo

Coolest-Cooler-Cover

There’s a million coolers in the world that pretty much do what they need to so your drinks stay cool. Then there’s the Coolest Cooler, which is probably one of, if not the most, lavish cooler designs in the history of mankind. That’s probably why it’s winning the internet right now.

Much like Batman’s utility belt, the cooler features many practical additions and even some excessive ones. Among these are: a battery-powered rechargeable blender, a removable waterproof bluetooth speaker, USB charger, LED lid light, a cutting board, plate and knife storage, a bottle opener and even extra wide wheels for convenient rolling.

Coolest-Cooler-USB

The Coolest cooler started off as a Kickstarter campaign aiming to reach $50,000 to start production on the product. With 46 days (at time of publication) left until the campaign ends, the Coolest cooler has already reached $5.7 million.

Anyone interest in purchasing the cooler can do so on the Kickstarter page, with a minimum pledge of $200 ($185 and $15 shipping). The estimated retail price once it hits mass production is $299.

Internet Births Genius ‘Cake Shake’ Hack

cake-shake

Dear Internet,

You are both the bane and joy of my existence. On one hand, you pop out insane $750, 000 pizzas. On the other hand, you bring us such delectable bits of goodness that it’s impossible to stay mad at you for to long. Take this genius “Cake Shake” hack that found its way to us by way of Reddit.

It’s further proof that the best things in life are simple, easy and fantastic. Simply chuck a slice of ice cream cake in a blender, splash on a bit of milk and whoosh — the perfect milkshake thickened by extra-sweet icing and bits of cake. 

I’m thinking this would work well with the obvious cookies-and-cream ice cream cake. If you want to take it to the next level, try a fudge-and-mint version. And remember kids, whole milk only. None of that 2% baby stuff.

Cheers,

Foodbeast

Party Like the Jetsons with this Wireless Blender

SONY DSC

At this year’s CES, Chinese tech company Haier revealed a whole line of things you might have seen Rosie the Robot using way back (forward?) in the Jetsons’ heyday, including this wireless blender which charges directly from your countertop.

Okay, technically, it charges using the “power transmitter”  you’ve already installed in your counter (oh, that old thing? Just my countertop induction coil!), but the point is you don’t plug it into the wall. Use it to impress your friends with magic and subbar margaritas!

The iPhone 4: It Blends

If you read the site often enough, you may have figured out that I am an Apple product fanatic. So of course I had the iPhone 4 a day before it came out. Regardless, a must have kitchen appliance is a blender, and the best in the game are BlendTec. They blend everything including the new iPhone 4. (Thx Engadget)

So bear with me and walk yourself through the changes in cooking since the earliest of times.
