Pimp My Cooler

The inimitable Elaine Stritch, a crazy cooler, Wired's innovation fellows and more in our weekly look at the web

Portland’s Ryan Grepper is pleasing the masses with Coolest, a 21st century cooler that is the ultimate party on wheels. His rendition—which is now on Kickstarter—includes an 18-volt blender for mixing up drinks on the go, a Bluetooth-enabled speaker, a USB port, beach tires, a cutting board, a built-in bottle opener and a bungee cord for strapping more gear to the top. Grepper’s clearly found a gap in the market—in the span of just a few days, he’s gained $6 million in funding for his project.
