It might have felt like your house was going to flood over the weekend if you live in the UK, but next time you can enjoy the rain and some tunes as your sofa floats past you with the JVC XA-AW33 MP3 player.

Designed to float, probably in your bath, pool or hot tub in all fairness, the player not only plays tunes it also creates waves in time to the music.

The player has a capacity of 256MB and along with the rippling waves it also produces a “soothing” light show, sort of like a disco in your bath.

Only available in Japan at the moment expect it to no doubt float to the UK in the not too distant future.
