At 7'1" and 325 pounds, Shaquille O'Neil was never known for his floating jumper, but the basketball star-turned-entrepreneur has partnered with tech company Monster to promote a new speaker that floats in water: the SuperStar BackFloat.

According to the erstwhile NBA great, the speaker is completely water-tight and can withstand submersion in water without damage. "You can take it in the shower with you," Shaq said in an interview with TechCrunch. "Not in the bathroom, but actually in the shower."

For pool owners who like to surround themselves with water and sound (party monsters, anyone?), the BackFloat seems like an ideal match.
