Good thing I wasn't drinking anything when I clicked that link. OMG! If I walked into a room and spotted someone with that on you would have to pick me up off the floor.:roll:

OMG! It's even more awesome than I expected from the comments here!

But no, I don't think I'll be buying one. Anyway - how would you drink your coffee while wearing that thing?!

There better be air-holes on that or else there's going to be a lot of complaints!

However, I would definitely get one of these just to freak out my co-workers. :evil

I don't think you can buy one. If you want one, you'll have to knit it. Yes, instead of spending hundreds of hours making a normal sweater, you can make . . . this.

Well, at least I'll be able to take up a new hobby that will hold the potential of keeping my annoying co-workers at bay.

Okay, I'm screaming in paralyzed claustrophobic horror now...

All I could think of was the television in Videodrome absorbing James Woods.

I want one.

Hell, no, I want two.
Oh, yes. Two people wearing these (identical ones, of course), and sitting directly opposite each other in a square or a mall or some other busy space.

That's performance art, right there.

I want both FOR ME! So I have a spare, in case..... or I could leave one at work, there's all kinds of reasons for one person to have two of these!!!

I want a sound bubble. I don't care if it's it's clear or dark or whatever. I just need something to drown out this damn construction noise. All I want to hear is the tap-tapping of my keys and maybe something from my iTunes library. Nothing more.

I was expecting it to be like a snuggie with a big hood to put over the computer, but that's just silly!

No, just no. If my computer gets a little sweater, I want one too. It's 20 below here!
