Written by Christina Kemp on July 14, 2014

Portland, Ore. — The idea is genius and now this Portland man has the money to fund his creation. Inventor Ryan Grepper says it’s a portable party disguised as a cooler.

“I wanted a cooler that was really well built yet had so much fun built into it that I would look for excuses to get outside and enjoy it. So I created the Coolest.”

The Coolest has a built in blender, blue tooth and phone charger. He put his idea on Kickstarter hoping to piece together 50 thousand dollars. Well its been about a week and he now has more than 4 million dollars in donations. His campaign is one of the most successful kickstarter campaigns of all time. Grepper told KGW he expects to ship out these 60 quarts of awesome in January.
