War­ble in the wa­ter

THE AQUABOURNE SHOWER SPEAKER – £49.95 WHO doesn’t love a good sin­ga­long in the shower? My neigh­bours will tell you that I cer­tainly do.

And if you ask them then they will tell you that I am absolutely crap. I mean re­ally crap… so crap, in fact, that it sounds like a baby ot­ter be­ing beaten to death by snooker ball in a sock. That’s how shite it is.

So when I’m absolutely de­stroy­ing songs by wail­ing like a small wa­ter­based mam­mal in its fi­nal mo­ments, it’s nice to have a back­ing track.

That’s when this water­proof speaker comes into its own. You pop it in the shower next to you and with some tech­ni­cal wiz­ardry the mu­sic – which is ac­tu­ally on your phone – is play­ing from a speaker next to you. All with­out a wire!

But be­fore I’m at­tacked by an an­gry mob and burned for witch­craft, I will re­veal the se­cret to my jaw-drop­pingly awe­some il­lu­sion… Blue­tooth.

Through the power of in­vis­i­ble waves you can lis­ten to your favourite tunes as you scrub your nuts.

The speaker works well and is gen­uinely water­proof, much bet­ter than tak­ing your phone in with you. Turns out my phone isn’t de­signed to be used in a shower. Shock­ing!
