I can't think of anything else I'd want out of a cooler to do for me. ;)

He needs to add a motor to drive the wheels (and make those wheels bigger, too, for the sand) that will run off that 18v battery.

That'll teach me to poo poo someone's idea.
Naturally it wasn't intended for my demographic, and I thought the idea of a blender on a cooler was just plain dumb.
Well I still think it's just plain dumb, however this guy has managed to introduce a product to a niche market and it has exceeded his expectations. Good for him.
 
I still wouldn't buy one, but my neighbor might...

For me, it's so much better than having all the traffic in and out of the house during patio parties for those blending margs.  I could totally see myself using this thing to death.
