Coolbox Reinvents The Toolbox

cover

Coolbox, the world’s smartest toolbox, today announced that it is reinventing the toolbox by combining cutting-edge technology with the classic toolbox we all remember. To fund final development of the product, Coolbox has launched an Indiegogo campaign which has raised almost $250,000 in just three weeks, demonstrating the tremendous demand for the product.  The Coolbox campaign can be seen HERE.

Coolbox will be funding on Indiegogo until March 28, 2015. Project backers can receive a Coolbox for a discounted price of $169, which is $130 less than retail price. For an extra $39, backers will receive signature-edition Coolbox tools. Manufacturing is set to begin in May with volume production beginning in June.

Coolbox features all of the classic storage and compartments you would want in a toolbox but with a modern twist to keep up with the times.  Key features of Coolbox include:

features

A 20v rechargeable lithium polymer battery with 5000 mAh to charge devices and operate small power tools while working, including drills, saws and sanders

battery

3 way splitter

Two USB ports for charging devices including phones and tablets

Built-in, marine-grade 40w Bluetooth speakers that are also compatible with auxiliary cords

The creators of the Coolbox found inspiration in the frustration they experienced when having to carry lights, phone chargers and speakers with them to job sites. They knew there had to be a way to integrate all of the technology that people use, need and enjoy every day into a classic toolbox design.

“It is kind of shocking that it’s taken this long for toolboxes to catch up with technology,” said Coolbox co-Founder Chris Engelo. “People who work with toolboxes likely use technology in every other area of their life, so there’s no reason for tools to be stuck in the past.”

AplWatch-HomeScreen-PR-PRINT_2

Apple today announced that Apple Watch, its most personal device yet and the newest innovative addition to Apple’s ecosystem, will be available on Friday, April 24 to customers in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, the UK and the US. Apple Watch is an incredibly accurate timepiece, an intimate and immediate communication device and a groundbreaking health and fitness companion. Highly customizable for personal expression, Apple Watch also brings an entirely new way to receive information at a glance and interact with the world through third-party app experiences designed specifically for the wrist.

Apple Watch introduces revolutionary technologies including the Digital Crown, an innovative way to scroll, zoom and navigate fluidly without obstructing the display. The Retina display with Force Touch on Apple Watch senses the difference between a tap and a press, providing a new way to quickly and easily access relevant controls. The all-new Taptic Engine discreetly delivers a gentle tap on your wrist whenever you receive a notification or message.

Incredibly Accurate & Customizable Timepiece

An extremely precise timepiece, Apple Watch keeps time to within 50 milliseconds of UTC, the universal time standard. Apple Watch can be personalized with watch faces ranging from traditional analog such as the Chronograph face, to the information-rich Modular face, or beautifully animated butterflies and jellyfish on the Motion face. Apple Watch goes beyond telling time with specialized functions on the watch face—known in watchmaking as complications—such as the sunrise/sunset, upcoming calendar events or daily activity level. With multiple customizable watch faces and complications, Apple Watch enables millions of possible configurations. Swipe up from the watch face for Glances that quickly show you information you care about, such as the weather forecast, your current location on a map or the music you’re listening to.

With Digital Touch, Apple Watch allows you to communicate in all-new ways by sending a sketch, a tap or even the rhythm of your own heartbeat. Interact quickly and conveniently with the world around you with Apple Watch by paying for coffee using Apple Pay, boarding a plane with a Passbook boarding pass, or raising your wrist to ask Siri for turn-by-turn directions in Maps.

AplWatch-Modular-PR-PRINT

Groundbreaking Health & Fitness Companion

Apple Watch encourages you to sit less, move more and get some exercise every day. The Activity app provides a simple visual snapshot of your daily activity with three rings that measure active calories burned, brisk activity and how often you’ve stood up to take a break from sitting during the day. Apple Watch provides the detailed metrics you need during dedicated workout sessions for the most popular activities, such as walking, running and cycling through the Workout app. With an accelerometer, a built-in heart rate sensor, GPS and Wi-Fi from your iPhone, Apple Watch smartly uses the best sensors for different types of motion and provides a comprehensive picture of your all-day activity and workouts. The Activity app on iPhone collects your activity and workout data from Apple Watch so you can see your history in greater detail. Apple Watch uses this history to suggest personalized activity goals, reward fitness milestones and keep you motivated.
