Everyone has experienced a loud colleague that they wish had a mute button, and a noise-cancelling device called Helmfon could be the next best thing. Created by Ukraine-based design company Hochu Rayu, the helmet-like solution fully reflects outside sound waves, blocking all sound from reaching the wearer. Helmfon – a word blend of helmet and phone – is equipped with a system board, microphone, speakers, accumulator, magnifier and a inside space for a smartphone, allowing the user to watch videos, organize Skype conferences and make calls from within the helmet. The device is built to be like a private pod, separated from the buzz of an office.
