Rigging up the speakers to dangle precariously from the kitchen window is no way to respect your hi-fi, but with summer seemingly already here we need sounds for our barbecues. And we need them now.Step forward this coffee flask of a speaker from online emporium of gadgetry Firebox. Despite looking like its ready to dispense a steaming cup of Java it is in fact a weatherproof wireless speaker primed to pipe tunes to your burger flipping soiree with aplomb.The built-in solar panel keeps it juiced up while a mains powered transmitter connects to your stereo, PC or MP3 player and chucks audio to where it's needed from up to 150 feet away.With only five watts to its name it's not going to have the fuzz round to shut down your illegal rave, but it'll do nicely for an afternoon lazing in the sun with friends, marvelling at your magical coffee flask and chomping on some under-cooked meat.
