Ever wanted to have a silent conversation in public, but still terrify people?
- Then you’re going to love the Mutalk – a Bluetooth mouthpiece that mutes your conversation
- Looks like a scuba rebreather, functions like a strip of duct tape
- The Mutalk creates an air pressure pocket that prevents sound from escaping the mouthpiece
- Muffles speech by anywhere between -20 and -30 decibels
- Developed by Shiftall, a Panasonic subsidiary trying to replace all the various functions that pillows serve
- No one will care who you are until you put on the mask
Okay, now for a product you’ll actually want–the XTURISMO hoverbike!
- It’s like sitting on a giant drone jetski – a gasoline/electric hybrid Kawasaki motor
- Aerwins Technologies showed it off at the North American Auto Show in downtown Detroit
- The bike can reach a top speed of 80mph with a height ceiling of 60 feet (4 stories)
- The company is hoping it won’t require a pilot license in the US like in Japan
- Will be selling in the US for $770,000 in 2023, and hoping to get costs down to $50,000/bike by 2025
