Forget The Cone Of Silence... Get Ready For The Cloak Of Silence

from the say-what? dept

Just in time for the remake of Get Smart to hit the theaters, it appears that some researchers may be making one of the TV show's most famous tools a reality. It's not quite the Cone of Silence, but rather a (one would imagine, more useful) cloak of silence. Basically, it's fabric designed to channel sound around the fabric, potentially soundproofing all sorts of things. The article suggests anything from soundproofing a room in your house, to military applications, such as soundproofing equipment. Of course, it's all mainly theoretical at this point, so don't expect to wrap yourself in silence any time soon. At the very least, you'll probably have to wait until the sequel of Get Smart comes out for the inevitable marketing tie-in.
