Many people often find it rather uncomfortable to divulge private information in certain locations, such as banks and pharmacies among many others. To address this, Yamaha has unveiled a very special ambient noise generator that “cloaks” conversations by stirring more noise into the user’s desired direction. According to initial test findings, VSP-1 managed to mask between 47 percent and 89 percent of conversations in four Japanese pharmacies.
