Tool-Box That Brings Tech Into Your Garage

Craftsman Toolbox

Gone are the days when a rolling toolchest only held tools. At CES Craftsman (which really should be updated to Craftsperson) unveiled its new Contour Powered Series Tool Storage that adds a charging station and a Bluetooth connected sound system.

A set of 220W speakers lets mechanics pipe their music from an iPod or Bluetooth enabled audio device, but also answer and place hands-free calls when they’re otherwise unable to handle their phone. Because the speakers on the toolchest are powered, it does have to be plugged in, limiting its mobility around your shop. But as a consolation prize Craftsman has included a charging station for tools, batteries, and other devices.
