The Sony Bravia brand has struck TV gold again. Their ultra-portable XDV-W600 1-Seg floats and is waterproof--all the better to watch television in the bathtub with. While the tiny 4-inch screen won’t impress big-screen TV snobs, the 2GB of internal memory to record up to 10 hours of television broadcasts might, and the 23 hours of viewing time the mighty XDV-W600 gets between charges certainly will.

The Sony Bravia XDV-W600 carries an IPX7 and IPX6 waterproof rating, which means that it’s submersible for up to 30 minutes (assuming a depth of one meter) and can take a beating from whirlpool jets. As you might expect, this mini TV will ship to Japan first, on October 30, for around ¥39,800 (about $368 USD). Stats for Floating Waterproof Portable TVs Trending: Older & Chilly
