#WTF Wednesday A new, portable Cone of Silence – no really – it’s called Hushme

I loved Get Smart. I wanted to be Agent 99. When I saw the ad for Hushme, a brand new piece of technology – with its own Kickstarter campaign – it reminded me of the cone of silence. If you don’t know Get Smart, watch the quick clip below. If you want to giggle at stupid technology, watch the commercial for the Hushme. Note that they never actually let you “hear” the Hushme working, which makes me think it’s actually EXACTLY like the original cone of silence. I especially like the end, and the actor’s adorable embarrassed smile.

It can be yours for just $249.

Or you could text.

What’s your “favorite” piece of useless technology?
