Karaoke, Keeping it quiet
Most visitors to Japan have probably tried out Karaoke at some time, whilst those living abroad either have a local version of it or have at least heard of it. It is one of Japan’s great export ideas.
The home Karaoke boom never really took off as strong as the Karaoke box one. Maybe people were worried about making too much noise and disturbing the neighbors. Here is an idea from Japan Trust Technology that keeps your Karaoke super quiet.
JTT are marketing a mute for your Karaoke microphone, that is compatible with the Nintendo Wii machine.
The device fits over the microphone and mutes the noise so that the neighbors are not disturbed. It is compatible with Nintendo Wii and also plugs into USB devices.
And when you are finished using it, you can wash the device for next time. “Clean and Quiet”
The mute micophone kit sells for YEN 3,480 and is said to be popular with people buying the Nintendo Wii Karaoke JOYSOUND Wii game.
For those interested, online orders can be made through the Japan Trust Technology website
Japan Trust Technology have a number of other interesting products on their website. The site is only available in Japanese. If you see a product you want to know more about, let me know and I will feature it in a future post.
