Or help people avoid being eaten by giant bats.

Thugs in Gotham start covering themselves in moth wings to avoid getting beaten up by Batman.

Mothman now becomes Batman's arch-nemesis.

We pretty much already have that tech in multiple forms, you can use sound absorbent materials to soundproof a room, even some submarines were historically equipped with a special hull coating that mostly absorbed active sonar pings, its really cool

Acoustic tiles & panels etc are kind of like foam rubber, "tiny bubbles of air" trapped in really dense materials, I'm not sure the weird tiny intricate microscopic designs involved in the wings have been mimiced yet, someday 3d printing will probably tackle this


RandomActOfMindless t1_j9rfs6m wrote

The problem is those wings are extremely delicate.

Yeah, definitely going to be a wait. In the meantime a great diy solution for loud drunks outside a room is smushing plastic bags into the crevices of a doorframe with a spatula and squishing rolled up trash bags to seal the bottom

The reason behind the fluffyness. Yet fluffyness no needs a reason to be. I want to cuddle a moth but I caaaan't

What do they mean someday? Just tape a bunch of moth wings to the walls. You can do that today.

The shit nature creates, crazy

Biomimicry. Very interesting

So, to keep from hearing the neighbors go at it, fill the wall with moth wings?

And they weak! If you have to identify an insect trap for anything other than moths, you fucking hate them. Moth gnats are the worst, but common moths are the debil!1!!

Anyone too interested in soundproofing is immediately suspicious IMO

Well it is great for you that you cannot hear everything in your house/neighborhood.... some people are deaf and some people are hypersensitive. Sound proofing can be pain relief.

What exactly does "places" mean in this context?

Also, the use of "might" in the title is hilarious, a lot of things "might" happen, OP.


RainManToothpicks OP t1_j9v56ei wrote

"Places" that are "loud" lol, movie theaters, recording studios, nightclubs etc spend quite a bit on sound proofing, most of it's bulky & super expensive

I’m sure the military will be working on it to create quieter murder weapons before any rooms get soundproofing
