At first I thought you meant Muzo, but it's yet another one.
Here's a review of Muzo: https://youtu.be/MCW5HUkrr-o

At least the moles and gophers won't be in their walls.

I've seen so many of his videos, he's a Riot of laughs..loves to blow himself up or shock himself.
Now if you could create a vacuum in your room, then there would be no noises to hear, as sound cannot travel thru a vacuum..or so that's what i was taught in school.

as for the mole thingie, My girl in Austria swears by it,, it claims that moles don't like annoying vibrations..i do not know,,i never had a problem with moles here.

Yeah,
Noise canceling has been known about for some time.
Only, getting the exact matching negative sound, so it completely cancels out the original sound.
Takes quite a bit of tinkering, even in a controlled environment to get the best results. :roll:

Had one of these, but it wasn't solar powered.
Just 4 D-cell batteries, a 555 timer and a buzzer that was mounted to the inside of the metal tube/spike.
Very simple design, the 555 timer would trigger the buzzer for 3-5 seconds, then would repeat after 20 or 30 seconds.
Don't know if it worked against moles, but the mice didn't like it at all. :lol:

i remember some factories used sound canceling near some really loud machines in the yarn mills..it helped some, but not much.
worst part is if it started to feed back,,would bust your ears then.

I just realize now that many years ago our family must have had a very advanced toaster.

When the bread was half done you....

Flipped opened the door
and
Flopped over the bread.

I can still see the stylized 'JK ' brand on the door....😏

Okay,
I guess we got a bunch of Toaster Fanatic's here.
:lol:

Glide Toaster
Twin hot plates heat the bread as the motorized unit pulls it through.

Next....
Printing Your Toast
Inspired by a desktop ink-jet printer, sliced bread is stacked and fed into the toaster from the top,
it is then toasted and ejected onto the base.

And now a really wEiRd one.
Portable Toaster
Innovative toaster by Kim Been features cool graphic interface that shows the user how well the bread is toasted.
