Panasonic is crowdfunding human blinkers

The prototype device, called Wear Space, is designed to keep people distraction-free when working in busy spaces or open-plan offices by blocking them off from their immediate surroundings.

These are just plain f#@king dumb. (In my opinion)

Just build your office with some walls. The open-plan office works for some companies but not for most. We have proof of that now.

Inventing something akin to a dog wearing a cone on their head and slapping some bluetooth headphones in them is not the solution.
