Machine Made Voices!

A brilliant new invention was introduced to the public in this video from 1939. The Sonovox applied sound effects to one's throat, which the person could then form into words with his/her mouth -no voice needed! The Sonovox later evolved into the "talk box," which fed sound through a tube into a singer's mouth, most memorably in Peter Frampton's song "Do You Feel Like We Do." Oh yeah, try to guess who the lady demonstrating the device is before they introduce her. (via Boing Boing)
