Whispering Candy

White noise generating breath mint that allows you to mouth a tune.

Sweet effervescent tablets that, as it dissolves, generates a low level white noise sound that you can modulate by moving the shape of your mouth.

You could see if this works by putting an Alka Seltzer tablet in your mouth. I know they used to sell fizzy candy but don't know if it generated enough sound to do this with. You may have to modify the design to be as noisy as possible. To make it louder may have to use science or something.

       //You could see if this works by putting an Alka Seltzer tablet in your mouth.// It strikes me, [doc], that a true halfbaker would do this experiment themselves.   

       Next up: [8th] will propose the use of either potassium metal or a water-sensitive explosive.

       White noise is far from singing; bit like x fector come to think!

       Well, the singing would come from the person . The candy would only generate the white noise that would b be manipulated by the person's mouth. Maybe whistling would be a better description.

       I scared myself the other day on the motorcycle. Opening your mouth at speed changes the sound inside the helmet, and without thinking I let my mouth open at speed, simulating a vehicle nearing sound.   

       But that has nothing to do with this, thanks.

       //White noise is far from singing// True, but you can do vowels and stuff with it, like a loud whisper.

       I actually like that. "Whispering Candy."   

       Could add a bit of sex appeal to the commercial. Shapely attractive gal puts one in her mouth and then whispers something to the guy next to her using Doctorremulac3's Whispering Candy. What did she say? Something naughty or just something referring to hydraulics. Perhaps something referring to naughty hydraulics?   

       Of course it's a breath mint.

       What [LimpNotes] and [normzone] said.

       Instead of white noise could it release a gas in sufficient volume to substitute for breath? And if so can it release oxygen? And if so can divers use it?

       //a gas in sufficient volume to substitute for breath..oxygen   

       Sounds like a tree. Properly weighed, the diver could drag it down with him/her. Probably best to stick close to the surface, as light levels deeper might not support photosynthesis.

       I'm going to change this to whispering candy because as everybody has alluded to, singing modifies a sine wave of varying frequency. This would be modifying white noise creating a whisper.   

       As for the volume you could get, anything's possible, the trick would be coming up with something loud enough that could still be considered "candy". Something that would, for instance, melt a hole in the bottom of your jaw would make bad candy.   

       On the other hand, it would only be necessary for the person to hear themselves whispering.   

       Didn't I post something years ago called "Wind singing" or something? I was running on the beach and notices you could do this with the wind. You can do it on a motorcycle as Norm pointed out.   

       Anyway, changed it to Whispering Candy. Sounds like something the Japanese might like.

       I wouldn't recommend using science--too conventional. Go Harry Potter confectionery.

       If you're choking and can't talk, you can pop one of these in and whisper "Help, I'm choking."

       I wonder if its possible to make a candy swazzle [link].
