US-based Oregon Scientific may just have come up with a way of relieving the monotony for those of us who swim dozens of laps at the pool each day by releasing the world's first waterproof MP3 player.
Not only is the compact MP-120 unit waterproof, it is specifically designed to be used while swimming and can operate safely at a depth of around about 1 metre. Out of the water, the MP-120 works as any other digital music player, but when those aquatic urges strike, you simply attach a small plug to the end of the unit to seal it and don the specially provided rubber headphones.
The MP-120 has an LCD backlit screen which can be seen under water and if you run out of music tracks, there's always the FM Radio to keep you occupied. We'll have a review up soon, so make sure you check back to the GoodGearGuide.
