Century Dolphin MP3 Player

Japan's Century has just revealed the Dolphin, a portable jukebox crafted specifically for wet environments. The aluminum body and the in-canal earbuds alike are completely immersible up to 3.3 feet, allowing most swimmers at the beach or pool to listen to music underwater. The player is also handy for skiiers and any exercise in rain or snow, Century is keen to point out. An elastic band mount will keep the tube-like base unit attached to a swimming cap or a snowboarder's goggles, where it can run for up to 8 hours on a full charge.

A single model exists with 1GB of flash storage for MP3 or WMA songs transferred from Macs and Windows PCs, and currently ships in Japan for $107. [via Far East Gizmos]
