CES 2015: Kube Heats Up Your Party While Cooling Your Booze

We may be in the dead of winter, but it’s never a bad time to start thinking about your summer entertaining or how to make the most out of your trips to the beach… by getting pissy drunk while listening to your favorite tunes. The Kube makes that easy, and does so with a bass-filled boom.

The Kube is a 20lb cooler that’s also a bluetooth connected, high fidelity speaker system. If you’re like me, then you’ve brought both a cooler and a speaker to the beach or had each out as you served guests at a BBQ. With Kube, you can get away with doing less, letting you spend more time enjoying yourself. Well, okay, maybe it’s not that much more convenient or time-saving, but your cooler or bluetooth speaker are nowhere near this impressive.

The appropriately named Kube is made of aluminum and polymer for insulation to keep your ice and beverages cold and features three marine-certified Polk Audio 110dB speakers, all while still leaving room for 33-quarts worth of booze storage. The minimalistic design also offers USB ports to charge other electronics and has discrete power and drain ports that seal to prevent moisture from breaking stuff. The battery life can keep the party going for up to 20 hours on a single charge.

Kube is a prototype at the moment, but is expected to release in May for $1,100. At that price, it’s definitely a luxury item, but from what we’ve seen and heard, the design, build, and sound quality mean that you’ll get what you’ve paid for.

Kube is just one of many great new products we’ve had a look at while at CES 2015. For more, hit up our CES 2015 hub.
