Summer is the perfect time for picnics and pool [1] parties, but don’t count on the mediocre built-in speakers of your smartphone or laptop to kick things off. Eton [2]’s Rukus Solar [3] boombox is a portable, wireless sound system that is powered by the sun. Simply connect any Bluetooth-enabled music player (like your smartphone, tablet or laptop) with Eton’s “one-touch pairing” and you’re ready to stream music wirelessly all day long.

Eton’s Rukus Solar [3] can play over eight hours of music after just six hours of charging. The boombox is equipped with a handle to carry around outside – you could even tote it on your shoulder like in the good ol’ days. You can also charge your smartphone with Rukus’ USB output and strap in your phone with its storage net. Eton’s E-Ink display is easy to read (even in direct sunlight), and the system’s full-range speakers allow you and everyone around you to enjoy sweet summer tunes. Eton’s Rukus Solar is $150 [4] and it’s available in black, green and white.
