Still waiting on your Coolest Cooler? This video from MakerBot Stories might help convince you that your purchase is worth the wait.

In the video, Coolest Cooler founder and CEO Ryan Grepper takes you behind-the-scenes to show how his idea came to fruition. The first versions of the cooler are pretty beat-up looking as he admits, “that first one probably won’t work the way you imagined it.”

Grepper then goes into how he designed and made his own awesome cooler using his 3D printer MakerBot, and took it online via Kickstarter to become the then most crowdfunded project of all time simply by innovating an old product into something fab and new. Grepper calls the chance to bring his Coolest Cooler to market a “dream come true.”

After a delay in delivery that we reported on last week, the Coolest Cooler began shipping last Friday. Have you received your cooler yet? If so, we’d love to hear what you think of it.
