With many working from home as a countermeasure against the spread of the novel coronavirus, Japanese manufacturers are taking notice and providing extra isolation methods so that people can not only practice social distancing, but also focus more on their work--as seen with a recently released privacy tent and bar.
Japanese soundproofing specialist Pia Living is now releasing a product called the Otegaroom, which is a portmanteau of the Japanese otegaru (easy, handy) and "room". The Otegaroom is a one-person isolation box that is functions as a completely soundproof booth for those who want to work in peace and quiet--as well as play music or video games.
The Otegaroom is equipped with LED lighting, extension cord slots, a small desk, and most importantly, sound insulation material fixed in between between the sound absorbing material of the box's walls. This keeps sound from getting in or out of the room, estimated to be up to the volume of roughly 15 decibels. Weighing in at just 50 kg, the Otegaroom is also a very easy installation.
