Personally, I have no interest in bringing my gadgets in the tub or shower with me as it’s one of the few places on the planet where I can truly escape from technology and relax. But for those of you who always need to be connected, or at least need musical accompaniment when in the shower, you might want to check out this unusual looking gadget from Japan.
The Ontama Speaker looks like something that might have been hanging in Willy Wonka’s edible candy garden, but it’s actually a water-resistant speaker you can use with your gadgets. Just snap open the bulbous plastic container, place you iPhone, iPod or other media player inside, plug in the 3.5mm audio jack and seal it up.
The odd looking speaker can then be hung up in your shower, or placed on the edge of your bathtub without fear of your precious electronic gadget getting wet. I wouldn’t float the thing in the tub though, as I don’t think it’s truly waterproof. The Ontama is available in a variety of colors, and you can find them over at Rakuten for about $13 (USD). You’ll probably spend more on shipping from Japan or Korea than on the speaker itself.
