Gadget of the Day: R/C Drinks Cooler

As professional summertime layabouts, we’ve been basking in this week’s glorious sunshine. But our laziness hasn’t reached its peak

As professional summertime layabouts, we’ve been basking in this week’s glorious sunshine. But our laziness hasn’t reached its peak yet – not until we get our mitts on the Remote Control drinks cooler.

This battery-operated ice bucket can be ordered to trundle around to up to 30 feet away using the remote control, which is naturally shaped like a bottle-top.

You’ll be able to enjoy a hefty session before staggering indoors to fill it up too – it’ll hold up to ten bottles or ten cans, plus some ice to keep them nice and frosty.

It might struggle to traverse a gravel driveway, but on the mini cooler’s underside are four so-called ‘sure-grip’ wheels to make sure it doesn’t tumble like a sloshed drunkard. Let’s just say it’s got more chance of staying vertical than you and your pink tribe of barbecue guests.
