While it might not as, um, USB-powered
as another snazzy can cooler
, this soccer ball chiller keeps a
"holiday five pack
" on ice without anyone knowing what contents reside within the sphere. Joining the growing array
of cooling apparatuses designed to keep the heat out of our lives (and chairs
), this silver and white conversation piece stands vigilant as your average "soccer ball on a stand" table decoration -- that is, until someone pops the top pentagon down and releases the lid from the base. The insulated ball can hold up to five canned beverages, plugs straight into your AC outlet, and even works in the car via a cigarette lighter adapter. Moreover, now would be a pretty good time to pick one up for next year's Super Bowl bash
, especially consider the significantly discounted ¥8,980 ($74) pricetag.
