Who among us has never needed silence in a noisy public environment? The solution in these cases is to isolate yourself in a closed place if possible. But now, there’s a new technology that promises to mute sound in a specific place by using robots and creating “bubbles” of silence.
Two robots “neutralize” external noise
- The technology is developed by A A team of researchers from the University of Washington in the United States.
- The idea of the project is basically to isolate sound without the need for any kind of walls or physical structure.
- It is a device equipped with speakers and microphones and works like a robot.
- The system transmits ultrasound and maps the entire environment.
- By placing two of these robots in the same environment, they cancel out any noise and silence the place.

How does the sound insulation system work?
According to researchers, the robots are highly intelligent and move independently. As they automatically position themselves in the environment, they isolate sound in the best possible way so that different conversation groups have privacy.
Technology makes it possible to create conversation zones, where one can talk without noise problems. Likewise, it is able to completely suppress sound coming from certain areas, creating 100% silent areas.
For example, if you’re in a group with many friends and have multiple simultaneous conversations, the system can cancel out the audio of others’ dialogue and remove the noise entirely, making your conversation private.

Although it is still in its initial stage, those responsible for the project ensure that there are no risks to the security and privacy of conversations. No dialogue is recorded by the system.
