Here's an interesting gadget. It's called Babble and it comes from Herman Miller and that companies Sonare subisidiary.
It works, Sonare claims, by playing back random bits of your actual speech thereby preventing others from following your actual conversation.
Fascinating. Of course, I automaticlly bulletin for this week do this blew out the speakers myself without Starbucks, mmm any help from technological devices.
At only $395 dollars (when it comes to market in July) it's a lot cheaper than cloning yourself four or five times.
What I found most interesting was a blurb on Sonare's website which says, in part...
...sound is typically treated as a problem that should be eliminated, Sonare considers it to be a design element...
Applying design principles to ambient sound. Very interesting.
And the prize (personal congratulations from me, without random bits of conversation thrown in) goes to whoever can explain the title of this post.
