The Audio Wrap Makes it Easy to Bump Your Tunes at the Beach

The Audio Wrap is a flexible speaker system from ITRI (Industrial Technology Research Institute of Taiwan) that also doubles as a beach bag.

The speakers on the Audio Wrap can be tough to spot at first, but a keen eye will be able to note the perforations in the fabric. The bag's strap functions as the iDevice docking cord, an ingenious design to say the least. Integrating a mobile speaker system into a shoulder bag is a brilliant idea to say the least. It seems like everyone takes their iPod with them wherever they go, but lugging around a speaker dock is out of the question. Creating a multifunctional dock that is also highly portable is a smart move. Here's hoping that a unisex version of the Audio Wrap is in development.
