TEL AVIV – A new Israeli invention that eliminates the sound of snoring with noise-cancelling technology is flying off the shelves before it even hits them. The device offers beleaguered spouses of snorers the ability to enjoy a quiet night’s sleep.
Ever had a sleeping partner that sounded like a lawnmower gone rogue? Fret no more, because a group of Israelis has invented Silent Partner, a device that claims to drown out snoring and is soon to be available for purchase.
Silent Partner does not actually solve the problem of snoring–a health hazard that can cause myriad problems, including increased rates of heart disease. Traditional anti-snoring treatment often uses CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) devices that are uncomfortable and can be–ironically–very noisy.
So instead of tackling the snoring itself, the makers of Silent Partner decided to find a solution to the noise. Using a small microphone that senses high frequency soundwaves from snoring, the device transmits a counter soundwave. The two waves effectively cancel each other out, reducing the snoring noise until it is almost inaudible.
The device is being offered to Indiegogo donors for $59 instead of its proposed retail price of $99. The developers raised the $40,000 needed to complete the first production line, and since then have raisedclose to $100,000.
The campaign ad shows a woman lying in bed with different men with “snoring” disorders, including a Hell’s Angel character who emits the sounds of a Harley motorcycle and a heavy breather sporting a Darth Vader mask.
