JVC Floating MP3 Player

JVC has released the distinctive AW33 portable music player. The white, cone-shaped gadget is designed specifically for the bathtub and the pool, floating at the surface to play music; it avoids the size and weight that would drag it underwater by using an NXT flat-panel speaker. The shell is nevertheless waterproof up to one meter (39 inches) and has an LED ring that both helps find the player and also pulses in time with the music for entertainment's sake.

Features are modest, with 256MB of flash memory holding MP3 or WMA (including protected WMA) songs for up to 15 hours of continuous playback. JVC ships the AW33 in Japan for $170 including a translucent stand that holds the player outside of the water. [via New Launches]
