Japanese company comes with gadget to mask the noises in public toilets


Going to the bathroom in a public restroom may finally be less embarrassing thanks to a handy, pocket-size noisemaker that masks the sounds that come along with our natural bodily functions.

At the touch of a button, the device emits roughly 25 seconds of "water sounds."

That window should give you all the time you need to conduct your business, although, of course, there's always the off-chance that it will only bring more attention to your bathroom goings-on.
