Every now and then we come across a gadget that just has to make you stop and say, "Wait, what?" Enter the $230 watermelon cooler on wheels.
Our good (read: weird) friends over in Japan have created what is quite possibly the most niche, and yet at the same time the most awesome, idea ever. Instead of, you know, a refrigerator or a portable cooler, which can keep any kind of food you can imagine cold, some people in a research and development facility have created a portable device with one and only one goal: to keep a watermelon cold.

The most amazing part is that this gadget has wheels, and a handle, so it makes it easy to transport when you're, oh I don't know, walking through airport terminals(?)

The craziest part of all is the price: $230. Hmm...would I want a Wii, an Xbox 360, or a portable watermelon cooler? That's a tough choice.

So now the question is whether or not this baby is going to make its way to the US. And I have to say I think the answer is pretty obvious.
