Summer might be close to over, but that doesn’t mean you don’t need a cooler for the rest of the year. Especially a cooler as, ‘cool’, as this. Can we even call this a cooler? A blender, a speaker, a USB charger, cutting board, integrated storage for knives and plates, it combines every party necessity into one package. They call this: the Coolest Cooler. How fitting. Ryan Grepper designed this project, put it up on Kickstarter and it doesn’t appear to have any limits to its funding, having already broken through the $4m barrier. $185 gets you in on this bad boy.

Top 3 Reasons Country Livin’ Beats City Livin’
1) Running over something and killing it is legal in the country.
2) Sister shmister! I love her and that’s all that matters!
3) You can’t grill in an apartm–WHOA! Hold on! The Bruce Handrail Grill ($77) by designer Henrick Drecker makes this a much closer race now, as this slick invention combines the function of a small grill with the principle of a flower pot. Just toss those plants over the side and hang this meat-toaster on the handrail instead.
Transportable Blastmaster: Party Over Here! Now Here! Now Here!
Gear By on Apr 30, 2013
Take the music away from a party and all of a sudden you hear the kind of meaningless banter that’s supposed to never be heard: “I KNOW! I KNOW! I CAN’T BELIEVE HE’S STILL WITH SELENA GOMEZ! HE CAN DO SO MUCH BETTER!” If you’d like to avoid this scenario at all costs, consider the Transportable Blastmaster ($4000), a take-me-anywhere music system that delivers 2,000 watts of power via two “6×9″ mid-range speakers and a 12″ dual-voice coil subwoofer with dedicated crossover. Stream tunes through Bluetooth, or use the on-board CD player, AM/FM radio, USB port, and 3.5mm input with remote control. The pneumatic wheel means it can climb through snow or sand with ease, letting you take the music wherever the party wanders off to, and avoiding hearing so much as a peep about who J—-n B—-r is dating.
Sasquatch Cocktail Shaker: Bigfoot Makes Big Drinks
Home By on Apr 29, 2013
Who’da thunk it? Bigfoot, the legendary manbeast of the Pacific Northwest, is behind the most overdue invention for the home bar. The Sasquatch Cocktail Shaker ($50) holds 110-ounces of mixable liquid refreshment, letting you serve up cocktails for 10 friends at once. Despite the hefty size (15½-inches tall), the shaker is made entirely of stainless steel with a built-in strainer to keep your Mojito’s mint pieces from getting caught in Bigfoot’s beard—dude hates that.
At gattertopdrinks.com you will find artisan crafted, award winning spirits made with organically grown fruits and botanics from the orchards and hedgerows of the Herefordshire hills at Gattertop.
When putting your whiskey on the rocks, it doesn’t feel right to sully the experience with cloudy, rectangular ice cubes, does it? Let your liquid flow with class over a giant ball of crystal clear ice via the Ice Baller ($55). Using a unique design that forces air bubbles and impurities out of the water as it freezes from top to bottom, this freezer friend needs a day to do its thing, but then you’re treated to a really pretty sphere of frozen agua. Now the big question is, will it also make whiskey balls?
Chill Puck: The Beer Keeper Colder
Gear By on Apr 16, 2013
First it was used in hockey, then urinals, but now the puck has truly found its calling. Chill Puck ($5) is a miracle-working ice pack filled with a sub-zero material that “defies the laws of physics.” It’s molded perfectly to fit inside a koozy or attach permanently to your can with an assist from a Chill Band. Of course it’s also a great reminder of proper punctuation, since “Chill, Puck” sounds like something you might’ve heard on MTV in the 90s.

For hyper heat-sensitive people and anyone else who likes the idea of a portable kitchen, check out flix Live ($4,160). Its three folding wings on its sides bring you all the vital components of the home’s most important room. You’ll find a chopping board, spice station, built-in scales, clock and timer, cutlery and tool holders, and more. Trick it out with LED lighting and a charcoal grill or two-burner electric stove and you may just be able to turn your current kitchen into a spare man cave.

The thing about beer is…it’s great. However, even great things can be improved, like candy when it’s being served through a PEZ dispenser. Well, meet the PEZ dispenser for beer, or as Nostalgia Electrics calls it, the KRS-2150 Kegorator Beer Keg Fridge ($370). The freestanding stainless steel refrigerator, with swivel castors for mobility and a spring-loaded beer tapper, is an excellent invention for enjoying premium tap beer at home. It can also maintain an interior temperature of 33-37° F, withstand about four 15 gallon kegs, and provide weeks’ worth of use.
