IRVINE, Calif., May 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- GroupBy International has announced that the gcooler, the world's first smart cooler, is now available for purchase on Amazon and Amazon Prime. Powered by a rechargeable Bluetooth transmitter, gcooler alerts users of the internal temperature of the cooler directly to an app on the user's smartphone. This technology allows gcooler to stay closed, keeping the contents inside cold for longer periods of time.
"The driving force behind the creation of this product was food safety," says Project Coordinator, Justin Kang. "We feel that by combining cutting-edge technology with a product that can truly affect the quality of someone's life is important. It's been an honor for our team to see this project come to fruition."
The idea for gcooler began in February 2016 and 11 months later, after a successful Kickstarter campaign, was ready for production and delivery. Today, Amazon shoppers can purchase gcooler for $69.99 and free shipping is available to Amazon Prime subscribers.
The Technology Behind: gcooler
The g-Tag, a Bluetooth transmitter with a built-in temperature sensor, is placed inside a waterproof pouch and then fastened to the inside of the gcooler. Users download a free iOS or Android app which can be programmed to generate alerts (vibration, sound or both) when the internal temperature rises above the desired threshold. Thresholds can be adjusted based on the contents of the cooler.
Gcooler is designed with high-quality, environment-friendly materials and the five layers of insulation help to keep the internal temperature of gcooler stable. It is large enough to fit 24 12 oz. cans plus ice, and the high-quality nylon strap makes it easy to take gcooler just about anywhere.
