It really makes my day when something currently only available on an undecipherable Japanese site suddenly shows up on a US or UK site. It’s a wonderful little thing that makes the world seem entirely less complicated. So, shall I present to you the Music Balloon? Some of you might have seen this on the other blogs a while back, but now (if you don’t read Japanese) you can buy it from a UK shop.
It’s not really a balloon, it’s a plug in speaker for your iPod / MP3 player.
Simply plug in and play.
This sponge foam speaker reminds us of 80’s TV presenter microphones and will happily sit on a desk or hanging out of a pocket while you play your tunes or check the latest podcasts.
Now you can cycle without headphones, irritate people on the bus and tube and share new music with friends without untangling headphone wires.
