Voice Mask is a concept wearable device that mutes whatever users say aloud while wearing it. It utilizes noise-cancelling technology to mask their voice by emitting the opposite sound wave. Voice Mask is used to participate in online meetings while in a public space. It can prevent confidential information from leaking and avoid bothering others. When in use, Voice Mask is worn around the neck and positioned to cover the user's mouth. It can be folded and carried around.
