Drifter speaker is buoyant, plays music sans smartphone

Portable speakers come in many varieties, and if you have average needs you'll probably find a model that meets your requirements, or most of them.

Thusly enters the Drifter, an oddly shaped speaker that you can knock into the water without risk of ruin, and that plays your music without a smartphone.
