i-Beam's Bubble Sound Barrier Concept Brought to Life at E3

The Future Is Now: i-Beam's Bubble Barrier Comes to Life

I was cleaning up my iPhoto library the other day and came across a photo I took at E3 that features a familiar-looking contraption. The bubble on the right isolates sound so you can hear music (or in this case, games) in a noisy room. Look familiar? It's a look-alike to the i-Beam Bubble Sound Barrier that I featured a few months back, except instead of keeping sounds in like the i-Beam does, this one amplifies whatever is underneath it for better hearing.

I love it when I see concept items in the real world. It makes me realize how quickly we're moving forward in technology and innovation. I gotta be honest with you, though, there are a few more concept items on my hot list that I'd like to see made into real working products. I suppose it's only a matter of time.
