An underwater radio, for no good reason

It lowers a speaker down below, just in case you're a dolphin.

Given the growing trend of people spending their entire lives in the bathroom , it makes sense that there's been a proliferation of waterproof LCDs , speakers , phones , DVD players and even remotes . But a radio that goes under water?

We're not talking about one of those music players for swimmers either. The "Aqua Radio" floats on the surface while submerging a corded speaker so you can "create your own underwater world with awesome deep-sea sound effects." Right.

Just for the record, the radio will play above the waterline as well, so the $15 you paid for it won't have been a total waste.
