Takara Tomy in Japan is offering what they say is the perfect companion for this summer: the Neckphones [JP], travel pillows (kind of) that feature an integrated speaker. The devices are waterproof, making them suitable for use in the bath tub, at the beach etc. (see picture above).
There’s also an opening that allows you to stick your music player into it as well. Takara Tomy says this is possible not only with iPods but also with all iPhone models, for example.
The Neckphones are already available in Japan in three variations (see above) for $21. If you’re interested but live outside Japan, contact specialized stores Japan Trend Shop, Geek Stuff 4 U or Rinkya.
