Inside the Comfort-Shell, Silentium’s noise-cancellation bubble
If there is anything that CES needs, it is silence. The conference is chaos defined, and chaos is loud. Thankfully, one company is bringing a little peace to the table. Silentium has introduced the Comfort-Shell, a giant shell that surrounds your upper body, specifically your head, blocking the outside noise.
I had the chance to try the Comfort-Shell out on the show floor, perhaps the most fitting place ever for such a demo. (Usually getting a demo on the CES show floor might as well be done on mute since you can barely make out a word above the constant din.) The giant, somewhat helmet-shaped object rests above you, and once “inside” you can hear softly playing music, as opposed to the outside drone.
