Tomomi Sayuda’s Mask of Soul Helps Overcome Fears of Public Speaking

Tomomi sayuda mask of soul fears public speaking designboom 03

I could have really used one of these during high school. And middle school. And that time I had to make a toast at a family party. Tomomi Sayuda’s Mask of Soul is designed to help those who suffer from a fear of public speaking, from designboom:

glossophobia is a medical term that refers to the fear of speaking in public. people who suffer from the anxiety develop symptoms of nausea, physical distress, and panic. in fact, 75% of the world’s population has some level of anxiety when forced to vocalize their thoughts to a group of strangers. with these facts, tomomi sayuda has created the ‘the mask of soul,’ a device that grants it user the psychological strength to project their thoughts and emotions to anyone in the near vicinity. in order to do so, the helmet hides the speaker’s identity and its microphone picks up their voice to play it aloud through a speaker located on top of the design. if the user needs to enhance their voice, a volume wheel is located along the brim. in its competitive setting the project takes the phobia one step further, inviting people to adopt another persona and shout insults at each other within the context of a championship tournament. the mask was influenced by the karaoke box, which enables participants to diminish stress through a primal releasing of energy.
