The Juke Tower (￥10,500Prices are approximate only and subject to change.
White Rabbit Express service fee and other costs not included.), is a waterproof MP3-player designed by Osaka-born Hidekazu Ashida. It’s an ideal way to listen to music in the bath or shower, and looks so good that in 2012 it received the sought after ‘G-Mark’, awarded to exceptionally designed products at Japan’s annual ‘Good Design Awards’.
With a base diameter of 78mm and a height of 183mm the Juke Tower doesn’t take up much space, but once the LED time display is switched on, the object really takes center stage, providing up to twelve hours of uninterrupted musical entertainment.
Waterproof can mean many things, from dont-drop-it-in-a-puddle to 20,000-leagues-worthy. For those concerned, the Juke Tower received an impressive IPX5 rating, which means that water projected by a nozzle (6.3 mm) against the enclosure from any direction will have no harmful effects*. Just keep your water bill in mind as shower times are likely to increase drastically.
