This project was my major piece of course work during my product design AS level. I got to choose my own problem and being a keen sailor I decided to tackle the problem of having an easily portable way of playing music on small dinghies. The course was very practically orientated and was a very good introduction for me to see what I could design and make myself in a workshop. Being my first experience in product design I played around with different approaches to design and got hands on making models, very quickly.

After my initial designs and models I started work on my final prototype. The basic design is quite simple as shown below. The 2 circular ends hold the speakers behind an aluminium case, rubber seal and screw on lid which helps to allow a tight seal for an MP3 player to be housed.
