A Voice Mask to Protect Your Privacy

Remember Bane from Batman? Now you can look just like him and have private conversations during office hours. Introducing Hushme, a bluetooth headphone designed to protect your privacy and defined the “world’s first voice mask for mobile phones”. Launched at this year’s edition of CES Las Vegas, Hushme is scheduled to hit crowdfunding later this year. While it might look like a tool for sadomasochistic or bondage practices, the voice mask is a highly advanced microphone-enabled mask, intended to stop having your co-workers overhearing your calls. It simply links up to your smartphone and even has a voice-changer. Now that’s a game changer.
