Sonare Technologies’ Babble Device Stops Eavesdropping Cold
Work in a job that deals with confidential information? Is your desk near the office loudmouth? Do co-workers eavesdrop on your private calls? We introduce you to Sonare Technologies’ Babble, a small device for your office or cubicle that offers complete privacy by disguising your voice while on the phone. How? At the push of a button (any time during a conversation), Babble transmits scrambled recordings of your voice, which sounds like background noise to nosybodies within earshot. Babble is compatible with most office phone systems and plugs into the nearest outlet. Available now at $395 USD, Babble may be a little pricey, but if it keeps sensitive information private—and workers happy—employers may consider it well worth the cost.
