If you are anything like me, taking a call in front of some random strangers might be your biggest nightmare. There are few things more annoying than someone eavesdropping on your conversation, forcing you to either whisper to go out. Hushme is a device that will keep your phone conversations private.
Hushme is a funny looking face mask, that muffles the sound of your voice so no other person can hear it. The device comes with a mask and a pair of earbuds that connects with your phone via Bluetooth. The mask is covered in a couple of thick cushion pads that muffle your voice. In addition, external speakers are embedded in the device that produces a variety of sounds to make sure not even a hint of your conversation goes out.
You can wear the Hushme mask around your neck like a pair of headphones and just drag it to your mouth whenever you need to take a call. The mask attaches to your face with the help of two powerful magnets. We cannot say much about the comfort or how suffocated would a person feel while wearing the mask.
We have yet to see how well the Hushme serves its intended customers. It is sure to make your look something like Bane, and you can even choose to produce super villain sounds from the speakers like the Darth Vader breath. There are other options like wind, ocean, rain, birds, monkey, squirrel, R2D2, and laughing Minion. You can even choose your mask from a variety of colors.
If you want to save yourself the trouble of getting an earmuff to stay focused while your annoying coworkers rumbles around uselessly, strap your Hushme over their mouths and get on with your work. Very multipurpose, right?
The product appeared at the CES this year and is not commercially available yet. The world’s first voice mask for mobile phone will appear in a Kickstarter campaign this May and you may be able to get one by the end of this year. The device is expected to cost $200.
