– The research center of Japan's NTT DoCoMo, has embarked on a program to develop a technology that allows people to talk on the phone without making a sound. It is a sensor that detects the signals from the muscle movements of the cheeks and jaw of a human being who speaks, and in recent experiments, the relative movements of the pronunciation of vowels have been recognized to 100 percent. In addition to the phone calls the technology could be extended to singing with unpredictable consequences for performers, choirs and solo voices, but the project is still in its infancy, as the researchers themselves think they can be completed in no less than five years. The same research group also has another side project that transmits the sounds of a transducer strapped to your wrist, directly inside the ear hearing loss. By coupling the two technologies and combining a speech synthesizer in power of the telephone company, may be able to call in complete silence.
