Ensure Privacy With Yamaha's VSP-1 Noise Generator

I’m sure I can’t be the only one who sometimes has no choice but to have conversations in public that I would rather be kept private. Sure, I’d rather be in a closed office or conference room, or my own living room, or pretty much anywhere other than where the wrong people could overhear, but what do you do? Apparently, you buy one of these!

We all know one sound often overwhelms another, which is why most public places have background music playing pretty much at all times. But with this, you can bring your own. It comes with eight different sounds to choose from, each specifically engineered for maximum effectiveness as blocking out conversation from casual nearby listeners.

In lab tests, it was able to block out 89% of a conversation at best, and 48% at worst. The VSP-1 stands only about nine inches tall, so you could arrange several around you if necessary without them being too obtrusive.

Here’s the catch: it is only going to be available in Japan, and even there not until sometime in April. Cost will be 105,000.
