The Mutator by Ron Adair, a product designer based in Salt Lake City, Utah, is a handy iPhone device that defies the word of Murphy's Law. As the designer points out, "If I'm at an important meeting, or some other place where my iPhone absolutely should not make noise, it invariably will find a way to be disruptive." Unfortunately for many, the 'mute' button on their phone doesn't silence all noises.

Instead of relying on this unreliable setting, the Mutator by Ron Adair does the job with flair. Shaped like a mini pyramid, it jacks into the phone to mute all sounds generated by videos, songs, games, apps, Siri and more. Compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, people might like it simply for its look.
