Basically, this article tells of the fascinating invention which was recently developed by researchers in Japan. It's function is to drown out the sounds of certain voices. It is somewhat of a confusing process, but the main principle which allows it to work is delayed auditory feedback.
The reason why I chose to highlight this peice of news is because of the simple fact of curiosity- how does something like this work? How could this effect us in the near future? Some say that it will be of great use in libraries! I think we can all agree on that.
