Thanks for taking the time to check out my project. I have been the managing director at Strine, Ltd for the past 10 years manufacturing new products in China and this is one of the most fun concepts we have come up with. The project is simple, fun and we hope you like it.

"Retro is cool. Old Macs are cool. A retro vintage Mac-looking cooler is cooler still....Your typical beach bunnies and sand studs probably won't pay this cooler much mind, but it should elicit excitement from the people you actually want to impress: your fellow geeks."
"...this adorably retro Mac-shapped box is called the MaCool and it's begging to hold your cold beverages."
"...this is one of the (ahem) cooler Kickstarters we’ve seen recently...."
"...While you can’t play any rounds of The Oregon Trail on it, it makes for a pretty sweet drink holster."
"As an added bonus, it’s guaranteed never to eat your 3.5″ floppy disks."
"...Seriously, this is a cool Kickstarter, and I’ve already put in my pledge...."
When we took the MaCool prototype around the city to show people, they were instantly intrigued and wanted to check it out. Many people got it instantly; however, some people appeared as though they had no idea what it was. We believe these people were suffering from HIDS (Historical Iconic Disassociation Syndrome; the temporary laps of memory to intentionally forget all relevant historical, iconic things, to make the other person feel old :)

How The Funds Will Be Used:
The money we receive will be used towards:
- Opening the molds needed to make the MaCool.
- Paying for production of the goods.
- Factory visits to ensure the quality control is looked after.
- Getting the goods from the factory door to your door.
1-Outer shell and Lid- These parts are made from blow molded HDPE plastic to give the product the most protection against the sun and rigorous use
2-Inner bucket/liner- This part is vacuum formed from HIPS Plastic
3-Handel- Injection molding made from PP plastic
4-Insulation layer- High quality PU expansion foam for maximum insulation. We have spared no-expense to ensure your cold beverages stay cold. And for our Arctic backers, your hot soup will stay hot!
5-Screen Label (sticker) - a resin based high gloss sealant is used to form a thin glass like layer over a printer piece of artwork to give this part the feeling that it is glass.
