Nah, these are not the latest iPod speakers. Babble is a device for creating acoustic privacy in an open office setting - or at least a cubicle setting. What happens is you pre-record your own voice making certain sounds/words. Then when activated it plays a babble of these sounds as an ambient background. So, if you are on the phone with somebody, to the people in surrounding cubicles your conversation will be lost in the background sound of, well, your own voice. People on the other end of the phone line will hear you normally.

Its an interesting device. But what happens when everybody has one? I suppose you are not all on the phone at the same time...
