If half your work day is spent thinking up ways to troll and annoy your co-workers, today‚Äôs going to be an easy one. Neil Thapen‚Äôs¬†Pink Trombone is a browser-based speech synthesizer that lets you manipulate a simulated mouth, throat, tongue, and nasal cavity to create a remarkably realistic‚ÄĒand equally annoying‚ÄĒhuman voice.

Manipulating the various parameters to produce the basic sounds of human speech isn‚Äôt impossible, as Thapen demonstrates in this video with basic vowel sounds, but it isn‚Äôt easy, either. What‚Äôs important is that as you spend hours perfecting your technique today, your co-workers will get increasingly annoyed at the Pink Trombone‚Äôs incessant drone. You can silence it using the ‚Äúalways voice‚ÄĚ button on the right, but where‚Äôs the fun in that?
