Sun lovers, take note: This is the cooler you need for all your summer beach trips.   

In what must be some kind of Kickstarter record, the Coolest Cooler project has already raised more than $4 million (more than 87 times its initial goal) with 46 days still left in its campaign.  

Considering this 60-quart cooler does about everything short of save you from a shark attack, we can understand the enthusiasm. The Coolest, which project founder Ryan Grepper calls a true “21st century cooler,” comes with: a built-in ice crusher (margaritas on the beach, anyone?); a waterproof Bluetooth-capable speaker; a USB port to charge your electronics; a cutting board; a gear tie-down; massive sand-proof wheels; an LED lid light; and a bottle opener.

Bottom line? It sounds like a helluva party in a cooler. You can currently buy one of these puppies, which should ship early next year, on Kickstarter for $165.
