The puzzle, consisting of four identical stainless steel pieces, also serves as a stylish decoration for a desk, shelf or table. It stands 2.5 inches tall, 2.9 inches wide, and weighs 1.5 lbs, available in silver or matte black.

The Tetra Puzzle has a retail price of $98. Shipping for Crowdfunding Rewards contributors is scheduled for November.

GoSun Chillest is a 45 liter cooler with two refrigeration zones that keep food cold for over 10 hours, with no ice needed.

Because ice doesn’t take up space in the cooler, its makers say it has nearly double the room for food and drinks contrasted with coolers of equal dimensions.
