Noise-cancellation headphones. They don’t cancel noises that really disturb people, like the boss’ voice or the caterwauling of a wanna-be American Idol neighbor. That’s when something like the AudiOrb comes in handy. Studio Total (ST), a Scandinavian lab, has invented the first loudspeaker that listeners sit inside.
Eighteen mounted speakers blast whatever music the occupant desires. It’s like a spherical womb. Comfort is key also. Tempur pillows that conform to the body line the interior and heighten relaxation.
Only 5 will be created, so those needing a break from noise pollution need to act fast. Also, no word yet on how long someone can breathe inside the bubble, or how more oxygen gets inside. However, that’s just a minor fact.
