'Bracelet of Silence' for Alexa & Siri users

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

"From Apple’s Siri to Amazon’s Alexa, smart assistants now form a staple part of many people’s daily lives.

"While these smart assistants can make day-to-day activities much easier, concerns have been raised about the devices eavesdropping on users.

"Now, scientists from the University of Chicago have developed a new bracelet that ensures your smart assistant can’t eavesdrop on you.

"The bracelet, dubbed the ‘Bracelet of Silence’, will jam any microphones in the vicinity from listening in on the wearer’s conversations."

I am glad it works for iPhones and other smart phones as well.  Where do you think they perfected that software?  The bracelet is kind of bulky.
