We are currently in the process of getting a new bathroom, and i, thinking it may be cool to be able to listen to a bit of music while lead in the bath, or even watch an epside of somthing!

Does anyone know of any audio streamers that could work in a bathroom?

Maybe a touch screen built into the wall that could select the audio/video you want?

or is this just fantasy?!

a laptop on a wifi network would work nicely. Get slingbox or some other video streaming device and you can watch TV or other video sources, and by default you can listen to mp3's from other computers on your home network, too.

If you want to get creative, you can buy a small form-factor PC motherboard and case and build a specialty PC with a small LCD panel you mount in the wall, or something. Throw in a pc remote control, maybe a wireless keyboard and mouse, and you can sit in your tub and watch TV, listen to music, browse the web, read and send email, etc etc.

This may be of no use whatsoever, but here's a little inspiration if you've never seen this:

A wireless Squeezebox (assuming you have a home network) with a T-Amp and a couple of speakers.

(I guess I should have looked at the link first. :))
