A speaker that fits in next to the shampoo

Waterproof iPod device is designed for the tile decor.


As more people seem determined to spend their entire lives in the bathroom, gadget makers are responding in kind with products that fit in with the decor of tile and plumbing.

The latest example is a waterproof iPod speaker from a Taiwanese company called Nova. Gizmodo says it can either sit on a shelf or hang from the shower head in a way that "suggests a playful life attitude," to quote the company.

But if you're partial to baths instead of showers, you may need one more thing to go with it: a splashproof remote.
