Toronto expats aim to reinvent the toolbox

The crowdfunding revolution means we've been treated to countless "[insert product here] of the future" pitches. But a team of expat Torontonians now living in California have made hundreds of handy types sit up and take notice of their latest product - to the tune of $150,000 and counting.

The Coolbox is, as you might have guessed, a souped-up toolbox stuffed with all manner of features. Since this is the era of Bluetooth-connected everything, the Coolbox features wireless speakers, a clock and USB ports - but there's also some ingenious touches like a built-in power bar, an internal battery (to charge all your stuff) and LED flood lights. Oh, and there's a bottle opener, too (disclaimer: power tools, drinking etc. etc.).

If you want your own workstation on wheels (did I mention it also has wheels?) head over to Indiegogo and pledge your $179.
