It’s pretty clear by now that our obsession with technology and gadgets is still going strong. And since it’s not going anywhere, it’s a-ok to embrace it. We’re all for making our lives a little bit easier and well – a little more fun! We just want to be able to listen to our music on the go, at the beach or pool – all while being illuminated and waterproof.
