Burger King Japan Installs ''Musical Showers''

Burger King Japan has introduced a neat, new twist on the jukebox by offering 'musical showers.' The newest Burger King Japan location boasts iPod docks in booths and speakers that hang down over your table. The music is channeled down through these umbrella-like speakers, though it's not clear if diners' music is successfully confined to just their table or if it leaks out across the restaurant.

No word on whether or not using the docks costs money (like a jukebox does). Would you like to see these in the U.S.? Let us know in the comments below!

    If it will be free of charge and the music was effectively confined to the booth then yeah sounds pretty cool. They should include a 3.5mm jack for non-iPod devices too though. And I'm assuming volume is controlled by a computer or human to ensure it doesn't get obnoxiously loud?

    Looks like the Sound Dome, and according to the manufacturer, nobody but the person sitting under the dome can hear it.

    Not a bad idea, but only if nobody else can hear it.

    I agree as long as I don't have to stab my ears out with a stale french fry because the table next to me is playing what new song....

    they had these in use in an electronics store in houston. The sound coming from the dome was still audible a few feet from the dome. You might be lucky to hear the music from the table next to you but it wouldn't make it anywhere across the restaurant.

    They have these all over the place. I live in a fairly rural area, and our gamestop and library has them.
