An MP3 Player You Can Dunk Straight into the Bathtub
Electronic products and water don’t always mix well, but if a music device is capable of withstanding the properties of water it’s certainly worthy of a look. Take the Music Planet waterproof MP3 player for instance, this is a fully-immersible MP3 player that can be dunked straight into the bathtub and be soaking while you relax and listen to a playlist of soothing tunes. If it can survive the bathtub, it will do the same in a pool on a hot summer day churning out beaty party music as well.
While it looks pretty solid for a waterproof mp3 player floating and all, the only thing that bothers me is that the music player needs to be powered by six AA batteries. It would be better if it came with a rechargeable pack instead.
