“Silence machine” zaps unwanted noise

From the “fight fire with fire” front comes this article from New Scientist.com. The article discusses a device that can target particular sounds and “generate sound that is exactly out of phase and neutralizes the incoming sound.”

While it’s not clear if the device is sensitive enough to work on computer noise, this is nonetheless a promising technology.

And, of course, it comes at a price. The article mentions industrial models start at $15,000 with smaller versions running about $1,500.
