Reclaim the silence in your apartment or office with an active noise-canceling system—blocking out noisy neighbors, sirens, construction and the like—with the new creation Sono. The small device that suctions right onto the windowpane eliminates noise which would otherwise pass through the glass, and it can even filter out some noises while allowing others to remain active. Having Sono is essentially like putting a volume knob on a window or glass door, and like a radio knob in that you can click through the channels you want to hear. For now, Sono remains a prototype, but it’s sure to hit production lines soon enough.
