Hammacher Waterproof iPod
Hammacher Schlemmer has begun carrying the Wireless Water-Resistant iPod Speaker, a stereo system tailored to music enthusiasts at the poolside or the shower. Though wireless iPod systems aren't new, the company says that the combination of this feature with a splashproof chassis allows for close listening while keeping the iPod itself in a dock safely out of harm's way. Other options are integrated for listening and even viewing, the retailer says: an AM/FM alarm clock radio is built-in, as are three audio/video output jacks for sharing the iPod's sound or video with a TV.
The dock is compatible with all current iPods and thinner fourth-generation models. It ships from Hammacher for $200.
