Unnecessary Product Of The Day: Watermelon Cooler

From Crunchgear.

Portable Watermelon Cooler

Just when you think you’ve seen it all in the world of gadgets, Japan churns out yet another unique device. This time it’s the Marugoto Tamachan [JP], a watermelon cooler and heater. That’s right, the machine doesn’t just cool watermelons, but for some reason it can also heat them up. And it’s portable, too.

Maker Joybond says the heating feature can be useful for keeping other stuff warm, too, for example beverages or food. The Marugoto Tamachan holds 14l and is sized at 50.2×35.4×39.2cm (weight: 6.3kg).

Needless to say, the device is available in Japan only (price: $230). Ask import/export specialist Geek Stuff 4 U if you’re really interested in getting one.

  1. Who eats that much watermelon that you have to have it on stand by?

  2. Frozen Watermelon would be better. Looks like a space age stroller for your rotund baby.

  6. My husband would love this. He goes through about 3 watermelons a week while they're in season. I checked http://www.geekstuff4u.com/ and they have the price listed as $308 now :(

  9. HA! All that white space does look like a canvass waiting to be played with. ;)

    Warm watermelon doesn't sound at all appealing to me, and I can't see spending two or three hundred dollars to keep a watermelon cool when a thirty or forty dollar Coleman cooler will work just as well.

  10. This is from the same people who created anime and manga. Seems reasonable.
