The floating, waterproof Buoy is the speaker you need this summer

...

If there’s one cardinal tech rule we all hear grow up knowing, it’s “always keep your electronics away from water!” Still, accidents happen, so everything from bags of rice to detailed insurance plans have brought all sorts of devices, from phones and tablets to headphones and speakers, back to life after traumatic water-related experiences.

There’s no escaping it: water is everywhere. But why should you have to shape your life around your tech just because you’re around a little liquid?

The Buoy speaker by Magtunes is a waterproof speaker that doesn’t need a lifeguard at the pool. Rubberized and ready to go, this speaker packs sound in a water/dust proof shell that promises it remains impervious to the elements. But, come on, is it really waterproof? Can it take a prolonged dunk in the river or, heaven forbid, the fish tank? There’s only one way to know for sure. And since the Buoy is an Indiegogo project, you do want to know for sure before you spring for one.

In this video Joshua Smith goes hands on with a exclusive prototype of Magtunes’ latest product. See how the speaker works, how well it sounds, and plenty more before you decide whether or not to support their growing campaign.

In addition to the features covered in the video, the speaker offers a power bank feature for charging other devices, Bluetooth 4.0 LE (low energy), NFC, and personal settings memory.
