A few questions:
1. Why do this?
2. Why go to the trouble of doing animation instead of, I don't know, video of the actual thing.

It is very odd. You can hear someone talking but only the direct sound to your ear. They use these rooms to test microphones and speakers. In this way you are only testing direct sound and no echo.If you ever get a chance to try it ,don't pass it up.But you will go crazy in a very short time.

#5 I agree. I went in one of these rooms some 40 years ago with Celestion Speakers in Ipswich on a BT field trip. Amazing feeling but it really does do your head in. Was glad to get out afterwards!

#4 and #7 go right ahead and embarrass yourselves. As #5 already mentioned, people *will* hear you - they just won't hear the echo bouncing back from the walls. Let me know when you do though, so I can make sure not to be there.

Why bother creating an animation about it rather than having a real person walk into the room? Silly video, nice room...

I once worked in such a room. The thing I noticed was a weird sensation of increased pressure on your ears.
