Bizarre product designs are something we love here at Creative Bloq – and tech doesn't get more bizarre looking that this soundproof microphone developed by Shiftall.

But what does this frankly odd looking microphone actually do? It straps onto your face much like a VR headset and utilises 'sound-deadening' technology to virtually silence your output whilst muffling any external noise. However, the web has very quickly caught on to just how weird this bit of tech looks, and the internet never fails to embrace weird branding concepts with their quick wit as we've seen in these everyday product design fails.
