A new way to save yourself some embarrassment in situations that call for total silence.

Putting your iPhone on mute often doesn’t actually prevent sounds completely – Siri and other apps can still find a way to be disruptive. That’s exactly why this kickstarter project has created a device to put your phone on silent.

Mutator is a small, sleek device that plugs into the headphone jack of your iPhone. To mute everything, all you have to do is twist the device 90° – and if you want to bring it back to life, simply twist it back 90°. The device “clicks” when it’s engaged, so you can be sure you’ve actually put your phone on silent.
