COOLBOX – The World’s Smartest Toolbox – Indiegogo

Sunday, February 15th, 2015


The Coolbox takes the classic toolbox, and puts a technologically updated spin on it, adding in a number of improvements along with a couple of additional features such as speakers that extend the Coolbox beyond being just a toolbox.

Coolbox speakers

First and foremost, the Coolbox is wired for power. It features a retractable 12ft. extension cord, with three built in 110v/22v, fused female electrical outlets, so users can run multiple tools or other devices off it. Also included is a 20v rechargeable lithium polymer battery. LED lighting throughout allows the user use of the Coolbox in a greater range of lighting conditions. An onboard LCD clock displays both the time and battery level, USB ports allow for a method to charge mobile devices, and built-in Bluetooh speakers allow for uses to hook up their music players, or project sound for other purposes.

Coolbox handles

On the hardware side, the Coolbox has dual handles, as well as wheels. A whiteboard comes with the Coolbox, mountable on the inside lid. For those who carry a tablet around, the Coolbox has dual position cradles for users to mount them to the box.

Check out the Sketchfab below to see a full 3D model of the COOLBOX and its various components.

SSD Does NOT Charge For Content

Friday, January 30th, 2015

While we do sell advertising, we do not request payment in exchange for content or stories. If someone contacts you requesting payment for a post on SSD or Tactical Fanboy they are attempting to defraud you. Do not pay them. Instead, get as much information from them as possible, including a call back number, which you use to request that they send you an invoice and then contact us as well as local law enforcement.

2015 Means Two Goals for SSD

Thursday, January 1st, 2015

I don’t normally share our plans because sometimes they don’t always come to fruition but we’ve got two projects that have sat in the back burner for entirely too long. It’s high time we implemented them.

The first is Soldier Systems Digest, a weekly email-based newsletter. You’ll finally be able to actually subscribe to SSD.

The second project that has been in development hell for the past several years is The concept is that all sale / discount announcements will go to a central location in a new sub domain on SSD.

What are your goals for 2015?

Note To Drive By Commentors

Saturday, November 22nd, 2014

Don’t attempt to create a new profile to talk smack about an article, give an asinine name, and then come back repeatedly entering comments that will never be approved to complain that your original BS comment wasn’t approved.

Or you can, either way, I can do this all day.
