Mask Speech Indicator

Who's talking?
  [vote for,

Couple some LEDs to a small mic and clip onto your mask. When you speak the LEDs light up to indicate that you are the one doing the talking. A visible indicator would be very useful when a bunch of people are trying to carry on a conversation. It would also help to single out the person talking across the room. Have you seen how Zoom puts a yellow border around the person doing the talking? This would be a 'real world' equivalent. Using EL wire the light could encircle a mask.

       Make it animated like some Christmas light talking trees.

       Very clever. [+]

       + haha. The louder one talks, the brighter the lights get!

       I'd rather we just get rid of the damn things entirely. This is too enabling for my tastes. [Neutral]

       Almost 3,000 ratings? That means that somebody actually made some money from that.   

       Shoot Steamboat, good idea too late, bummer!

       //speech to text//
When Google Glass (RIP) came out, I thought that would be a great application for it, primarily for deaf users. And also sign- to-text or sign-to-speech, for hearing users.

       a1, I didn't get at first why they couldn't just include an LED indicator light on Glass, but I suppose people would just cover it up like they do the webcam on their laptops. The biggest issue is, and will likely remain, movie theaters.

       We have two, and neither are very good.

       Actually there's not, that Hooters closed years ago lol

       Surprisingly, the strip clubs we HAVE are across the county FROM Fairchild, too.
21 Quest, Feb 14 2022

       The commanders might have something to do with that though, as well as the Airway Heights city council. Bunch of prudes out here, they lose their shit if a massage place opens up. They're CERTAIN these are happy ending clubs lol
21 Quest, Feb 14 2022

       The real happy ending club 2 blocks over, thankfully, remains thus far apparently undetected.

       It's not the investigative skills; it's the mask embroidered with the legend "Excuse me, but where can I get laid around here?" in very neat and careful cross-stitch. From a pattern book. I'm seeing primroses, too, they make a path.
