Eye View On The World Cup, Pass Me The Vuvuzela,Draft Or Bottle

June 15, 2010

An online company has begun marketing an “Anti Vuvuzela Filter” that promises to silence the sound of the controversial plastic trumpets that have become the trademark of South Africa’s World Cup.

The company’s web site, antivuvuzelafilter.com, sells an MP3 audio file for 2.95 euros (3.60 dollars) that the company says will cancel the vuvuzela noise for TV viewers by producing a sound wave similar to the horn’s that cancels the noise.

“Just download our specially designed vuvuzela noise cancellation MP3 and play it back on your home stereo system, computer, iPod, iPhone, etc.,” the web site says.

But Anthony Sullivan, a physicist at South Africa’s Rhodes University, called the idea “a marketing hype and a waste of money.”

Sullivan said we have our own ideas for the best use of  the Vuvuzela.
