"SpeechJammer" Invention Stops a Person Talking Mid-Sentence, National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) Study


3/5/2012 8:02:36 AM

Two researchers in Japan have invented a "SpeechJammer" device that can stop a person talking in mid-sentence, by just projecting back to them "their own utterances at a delay of a few hundred milliseconds". The device does not stop them talking permanently, it is just that they become so confused, they can't finish their sentence and begin to stutter or just shut up.
