Inventors have created a first of its kind sleeping mask which uses soundwaves to silence your partner's snoring.<br />
<br />
Silent Partner looks like any regular sleeping mask but uses 'active noise cancellation technology'.<br />
<br />
It senses the snoring sound and emits a counter noise to cancel the undesirable one. <br />
<br />
This means the person who puts the mask on will carry on snoring but their partner will not hear it, so both parties will have their sleep uninterrupted.<br />
<br />
The Silent Partner, which will retail at $81 (£66), relies on the physics of sound waves. Every sound is characterised by pressure waves, which have specific amplitudes and frequencies. <br />
<br />
It emits a sound wave with the same amplitude but at an inverted phase to the original sound. <br />
<br />
As a result, the wave and counter-wave combine to form a new sound wave and the two cancel each other out.
