Improve Your Hearing In Noisy Environments With Head Bubbles

These bubble-headed girls have created a device to drown out background noise from pubs and bars. Too bad it makes you look like an escapee from an astronaut fan club.

If we're all looking like astronauts in a few years' time, it's all Elaine McLuskey's fault. The product design student from Edinburgh Napier University's School of Arts and Creative Industries will be exhibiting her work at the school's degree show from the 13th to 23rd of May. Joining the head bubbles is a second idea for hard-of-hearing pub-goers, which involves people being connected to a table version of the bubbles. [BBC via TechRadar]
