This device is an invention of Shiftall, a company that presented it during CES 2023 promising unprecedented noise reduction. They have named it ‘mutalk’ and it consists of a device very similar to the first VR glasses, but instead of the eyes it is placed in the mouth and remains there thanks to some strips that surround our head. In this way we can have a microphone with extensive noise reduction that is also practically soundproof.
