A Japanese company called Idea Label has designed the “Music Planet” [JP] today, a portable, ball-shaped MP3 player that you can take with you to the bath tub. The device is IPX7-certified, meaning it can withstand immersion in water up to a depth of 1m for up to 30 minutes.
The device also features an FM radio tuner, an alarm clock and stereo speakers. It supports SD/SDHC cards (up to 32GB) and has a USB port.
Sized at 165×160×165mm, the Music Planet is powered by six AA batteries that are enough to listen to MP3s stored on an SD card for 13 hours (9 hours for USB files and 28 hours for the radio).
The device is already on sale on Idea Label’s Japanese website (price: $120) and is Japan only. So if you live outside this country, I’d suggest you contact import/export specialists Japan Trend Shop, Geek Stuff 4 U or Rinkya.
