It's time for the rubber ducky in your bathtub to go into retirement and make way for the iDuck Floating Wireless Speaker. It can't squeak and neither will it squirt water out of its bill but it can function as a radio and it will play whatever you've got on your mp3 music player. iDuck 2, Rubber Ducky 0.
Kidding aside, I think the iDuck Floating Wireless Speaker would make a fun addition to the tub, alongside its rubber version, if you have one of course. You can relax in a hot warm bath while listening to some soothing melodies or tune in to your favorite show on the radio without risking electrocution.
It would also make a great bathing companion if you have any children. It will certainly be able to decrease the number of days you'll have to struggle (and plead) with them just to make them take a bath with the iDuck around to play some Barney songs or whatever it is that kids listen to these days.
So how does the iDuck work? Well, you simply have to plug in your mp3 player (like your iPod, Zune, or Coby) to the egg-shaped transmitter which you should obviously put somewhere dry and press play. It's as simple as that.
No wires means no muss and no fuss. Plus the iDuck is the safer alternative compared to having a radio near the tub. Now that's a definite no-no.
