Ford built a noise-canceling kennel to placate your pup

Ford this month unveiled a special kind of kennel for sensitive dogs. The Ford Quiet Kennel prototype uses noise-canceling technology, which appears in some cars, to create a quiet haven for a dog that might be scared by loud noises like fireworks or parties. That way, the pet can still hang out around the action without actually being subject to it.

The system works like many other noise-canceling systems. External microphones pick up the sound of fireworks or other loud noises, and a speaker inside the kennel emits an opposing frequency that essentially "cancels out" the offending noise. The kennel itself is partially made of cork, further aiding sound absorption.
