I’ve got to admit that whenever I’m in a public place and I get a phone call, I’m often reluctant to answer it because I know everyone around me will be able to hear what I’m saying and silently judge how shit my life is – it’s a lot of pressure.

I normally don’t even bother answering the call unless it seems really important, but Hushme might be the answer to my problem in this respect. That is, if I want to swap people silently judging me about the details of my life for them probably pointing and laughing at me for wearing a full on muzzle around my mouth all the time. What a trade off.
The device fits around your mouth and lets you talk into it so that nobody in the vicinity can hear what you’re talking about. You can also change your voice to sound like a monkey or Darth Vader with it as an added bonus. The only downside is that you look like Hannibal Lecter or Bane when you’re wearing it. Not sure whether that’s a good or bad thing to be honest.
Here’s a trailer that displays everything you need to know about it:
Yeah, part of me wants to think that this is just an elaborate trolling because surely they must have tested it and nobody wanted to wear that stupid muzzle all the time, whatever the benefits?
However the website seems pretty legit and is announcing them appearing at tech shows and the like, so it seems like this is actually a real product? I guess that guy did look pretty happy when he had finished using it, but I’m still far from convinced. Surely it can’t be real and people haven’t spent thousands of pounds developing this?
