Dentists invent device to cancel out the sound of Nicky Campbell
An invention which cancels out the noise of Nicky Campbell could help people overcome their fear of a dental check-up, researchers say.
A recent poll showed that dentists favour Radio Five Live above all other radio stations, but the prevalence of Campbell across that station is a big problem for people who are already uncomfortable with the prospect of dental work.
Dr Mike Fotherton of Brunel University explained ‘Patients like the lively mix of news, sport, and travel updates but it is difficult to avoid Campbell as he pops up in trailers for the breakfast show throughout the day. Now we have been able to identify the exact frequency that Campbell operates at and have managed to replace his voice with the more soothing sound of a high pitched drill.’Click to send this story to a friend
