A new phone gadget has the ability to mute people's voices while they are on the line.
The new phone gadget, The Hushme, uses technology which cancels out their end of the conversation so only the person on the other end can hear.
According to The Times newspaper, the kit was showcased at the CES tech show in Las Vegas, and resembles a pair of oversized headphones and instead of going over the ears it covers their gobby mouth.
Those irritated by their colleagues can simply connect it through their phone using Bluetooth.
