I'm a product design student with a lot of time on my hands at the moment so I'm trying to go through some of my ideas I've jotted down recently.
One of my ideas is a sound cancelling face mask that could be used during gaming so that late at night the user can still speak into a microphone within the mask so that their friends/other players can still hear them without the user having to whisper or risk waking anyone.
I have seen one or two other posts on this forum about similar ideas but neither have really led to anything. I have seen the mask made from plaster of paris and this does not suffice for my design.
I need the mask to be lightweight, durable, safe to be worn around the mouth for multiple hours, breathable (yes I realise breathable and soundproof are pretty contradicting).
In an ideal world it would be a mask exactly like this in shape, design and aesthetic but of sound cancelling materials : https://rzmask.com/collections/m2-mask/products/grey-m2-mask
I am just wondering if anyone knows a suitable material for this idea or knows of any similar designs/products.
Thank you for your time,
