Muji's known for its ultra-minimalistic take on everything from office supplies, to apparel, to electronics like this simple splash-proof speaker housing for a smartphone that still provides full access to its touchscreen.

Powered by three AAA batteries that promise up to 30 hours of playback, the $70 speaker eschews a wireless connection to your device in favor of an old school tethered connection to its headphone jack. A series of heavy duty clamps keep any and all moisture out, while a flexible membrane that wraps across your phone's display like cellophane still lets you view and use its touchscreen for playback control.

Shown with an iPhone 4 under the hood, the speaker's generous capacity looks like it can handle almost any reasonably-sized smartphone or media player, although the Galaxy Note could be pushing its limits.

DISCUSSION

I never understood why consumer electronics of this size choose AAA over AA batteries. AAA cost more for the users and have less stored energy... one would assume that people would desire AA powered devices more because of the ubiquitous nature of AA.
