You may have heard that Microsoft recently
expanded the campus
a little, one of the teams that had grown out of their space was Microsoft Hardware. The hardware team invited me over to see The Labs of Microsoft Hardware and check out the process behind creating and testing products like the
Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000
Lifecam Cinema HD
We end our look at the Labs of Microsoft Hardware by looking at one of the coolest rooms I've ever been in. It is the anechoic chamber in the Audio Lab. Now, I knew going in that this was going to be a quiet room. But I had no idea just how quiet. Even when
you have the best soundproofing on your head, you're still subjected to vibrations through your entire body. This room is even vibration-proof. The results are almost scary, leaving you with a feeling that you've just disconnected from the world.
