Beyond CES 2016: FRESHeTECH Splash Tunes Bluetooth Shower Speaker

Actually, this device has been around for awhile.  The video was uploaded to YouTube on 4/11/2014.

You'll never want to shower without this gadget again.  (boingboing, 9/2/2016)
What's also great about the FresheTech speaker is that it has skip and back buttons right on its face, so you can easily navigate between tracks or episodes while your hands are wet. If you really wanted, you could even take calls and have conversations through the included Bluetooth microphone mid-shower.
The narrator of this tutorial repeatedly mentions the option of having phone conversations while showering.  Definitely not a selling point for me.

Amazon customer reviews

A lot of enthusiasm for this product.  On the flip side, naysayers complain about poor sound, need to charge frequently, and the fact that it conked out after a few weeks of use.

I put my Kindle in a gallon sized ziplock and stick it on the shower rack.
