The NU Dolphin is designed to be worn on swimmer goggles or on an armband for surfing and other activities.¬† Future plans for Dolphin include accessory kits designed to provide better functionality for different water sports activtities.

Olympic Silver Medalist and Double Commonwealth Gold British Swimming Champion Sharron Davies says ‚ÄúI think an MP3 player you can use in water is a great idea for fun and to relief hours of boredom if you have to train in water, it’s a shame it wasn’t around a few years ago when I was swimming.”
