As the summer officially started north of the Equator the following soft technology product might be something to consider when heading to the beach, the Hi-Sun beach towel with integrated speaker.
I am always amazed about the evolution of products and about the penetration of technology into areas not that obvious at first. While the integration of speakers into bags is still something that seems logical the move to have speaker in pillows was already adventurous.
The next techno evolution come in form of a beach towel with integrated audio system. A product that again might look at first some gadget-geeky stuff but considering the need of protecting any electronic device while being on a beach against sun, water and sand makes such product an interesting option.
Another reason going for an external speaker is the not very pleasurable experience wearing earphones or earbuds while sweating the the sun.
Sure you could use a set of external, portable speaker boxes but if there is a way to combine tow functions into one save space and minimizes items to take care off.
The Hi-Sun beach towel has an integrated Audio system connecting via a 3.5mm universal jack connecting to iPhone, iPod or any other player with a 3.5mm jack. A amplifier supplied by a Li-ion battery drives a pair of 2W speaker.
This technology enhanced towel also doubles as backpack to transport all your beach necessities – cute.
Available in pink, blue, black and red for 59.- EUR or about $72.-
