'World's smallest' MP3 player for swimmers

Ubana's "uCan" does seem more streamlined than previous models.

As any music-loving swimmer will tell you, the last thing you need while doing laps is something cumbersome strapped to your head. And while there have been a number of waterproof MP3 players on the market, this latest wearable version makes that oft-repeated claim of being "the world's smallest."

Based on its appearance, Ubana's "uCan" does look less bulky than other models we've seen--and more important, it appears less likely to slip or fall off. The player has 1GB of built-in memory, claims 15 hours of playback time, and can be submerged up to 10 feet, according to Pocket-lint. And just in case it does slip off, it floats for "easy retrieval."
