Grundig Emanate
iPod docks are ten-a-penny, so it's no surprise that manufacturers are coming up with some novel USPs. This Grundig does just that, being as it is 'weatherproof' and 'splashproof'...

Just the thing for the beach, particularly boisterous garden barbecues or indeed anglers who want to scare the fish once the close season finishes on Monday, this is Grundig's £100 Emanate.

It's a weatherproof, splashproof iPod speaker system, complete with rechargeable batteries and a lock-down see-through cover for your personal player, and any similarity to an ice-bucket is entirely coincidental.

It comes with controls around the dock, and also a remote handset, and has a mains adapter for recharging. Other facilities include a 3.5mm input for other MP3 players.

It has a 2x15W output – see what we mean about scaring the wildlife? – and stands 24cm tall. It's available in black or white, direct from Grundig's online shop.
