Panasonic is no stranger to the rugged gadget game, so it doesn't come as a surprise that the company's newest wireless speaker is another toughie. Called the SC-NT10, the 4W compact device houses two teensy full-range speakers and a passive radiator. The company claims its "quad proof" design can take on dust, splashes of water, intense heat or freezing cold and drops from as high as 30 inches. Other features include NFC for quick Bluetooth pairing, a 3.5mm jack, and up to eight hours of battery life. It won't ship until this fall (estimated date is sometime in August), but it's currently available for preorder for $100 each. If you find that price too steep for a hockey puck-sized speaker, you can check out SC-NT10's less edgy but cheaper cousin.
