The Null Device

Cyberspace is where a telephone call takes place

What do you get when you cross a mobile phone with a sensory-deprivation chamber? the Isophone:
"You can't hear anything else, you can't see anything else, you can't smell anything else, all you have coming in is the telephone call. "You can't feel anything because you're basically floating around in water that's heated to body temperature, which removes the distraction of gravity, and allows the user's body to blur into the environment."
"Whilst it's not necessarily very efficient, in many ways it's very pragmatic, in that the user will be totally focused on who they're talking to," said Mr Auger.

Perhaps this will be the new thing to have once Segways become passé. (via bOING bOING)

Considering sensory deprivation is a standard part of US Defence Department interrogation routine ... would someone be more or less likely to speak the truth when using one of these thingumies?
