Waterproof speaker isn't an ice bucket

Finally, a model that's as comfortable in the bathroom as it is outdoors.

As we continue this week's summertime outdoor entertainment theme, today we turn our attention to the ever-popular waterproof MP3 speaker. Yes, we've featured poolside models before, but for some reason they've often resembled ice buckets .

Net Japan's waterproof "Juke Tower MP3 Speaker," however, is as sleek and small as a shampoo bottle (see photo) at just over 7 inches tall--which GeekSugar says makes it perfectly manageable for the shower as well as the patio. The $129 wireless speaker, which stores up to 2GB of tunes on a detachable USB drive, runs on three AA batteries and has an LED clock so you won't be late for work.

And if you don't need a job, it's a perfect addition for spending a lifetime in the bathroom .
