The quietest place in the universe! No one stays in this room for more than an hour
Known as 'the quietest place on the planet' at -20.6 decibels, no one has ever stayed in this room for more than an hour. Those who enter the room and close the door can hear the heartbeat and blood flow after a while. Here is the most interesting room.
Silence is something we all need from time to time, but it can drive you crazy when you're in the quietest room in the world. Here is the most interesting room in the world that Microsoft has built.
Entered In The Guinness Record Book! The Quietest Place In The World
This room, which Microsoft built at its headquarters in Redmond in 2015, took its place in the Guinness Book of Records as 'the quietest place on the planet' with -20.6 decibels.
So what does -20.6 decibels mean for us? In order to better understand this figure, first of all, it should be noted that the human hearing limit is 0 decibels, but the fact that our ears do not hear does not mean that there is no sound at all, so there are negative values. For example; The collision of air molecules at room temperature produces a sound of -24 decibels.
No One Left More Than An Hour
No one resisted staying in this room, also known as the 'Anechoic Room', for more than an hour. Those who walk in say that even swallowing their own saliva is incredibly loud and they feel dizzy after a while.
Inside 6 Floor Concrete Walls, The Walls Are 30 Cm Thickness.
This room, where the technological devices of the future are made, is placed between six floors of concrete walls to prevent the sound from outside. In this building, which can be defined as a 'room within a room', all walls are 30 cm thick, thus preventing 110 decibels of sound.
Everything Is Custom Designed
According to the news in the BBC; The sides of the cube-shaped chamber are 6.36 meters long. All surfaces are covered with 1.2 meters of sound absorbing sponge. This prevents the sound from hitting the walls and echoing. There are also special insulations in the door frames. Everything from ventilation, cable entries to fire extinguishing equipment is specially designed.
You Feel From Your Blood Flow To The Rugging Of Your Bones
The most talked about feature of an anechoic room is not that you can't hear anything, but that you can hear your own body as all other outside noise is lost.
Shortly after you enter the room and close the door, you begin to hear your own heartbeat, a few minutes later you can hear your blood flow and how your bones creak. Those who enter the room tell that when there is no sound from the outside world, absolute silence gradually turns into an unbearable ringing in your ears.
A New Record Is At The Door
Meanwhile, a new chamber built at Orfield Laboratories in Minneapolis has filed for Guinness World Records. Oda plans to break the 'anechoic chamber' record with -24 decibels.
