If You Build A Better Tailgate Product, Will They Come?

BENTON HARBOR, Mich. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Forget about building a better mousetrap because some industrial designers are more concerned with building a better device for tailgating.

In honor of Super Bowl Week, the Michigan-based Gladiator GarageWorks has unveiled a new concept appliance called the GaterPak that features everything needed for tailgating in a compact portable unit.

For instance, there’s a built-in refrigerator; a propane grill; a warming drawer; and a beer tap.

But the proposed device also features a stereo with a CD/DVD player, waterproof speakers and an LCD screen.

Sadly, the Tailgater is still in the development stage and won’t be on the market until next year at the earliest. However, industrial designers are asking the public to log on to to check out the device and to offer suggestions on making it the best it can be.
