Hearing Aid Room 101

This week’s episode of Wonderstuff on BBC2 gave me a well-timed reason to count my acoustic blessings. How about this for a hostile office environment for the hearing aid user: the Jeyes Toilet Testing Facility, aka Flushing Meadows, where Jeyes test their toilet cleaning products.

Apparently there are over 200 lavvies wired up to a computer, which commands them all to flush simultaneously at predetermined intervals. Ouch. I’ll never moan about a rumbling air vent again.

You can see it in action on the BBC iPlayer at around 3 mins in to the episode.
