And you thought those Breathe-Right strips were awkward! The Silk'n Silent is essentially a small (but not too small, certainly) mask a wearer attaches just below their nose to help cut down on snoring.

It's more than just a muffler, though. The device features an active system triggered by snoring that's designed to open up the air passageway during inhalation, while applying resistance to the air during exhalation, preventing snoring in the process.

Actually getting to sleep with one of these strapped onto your head, however, is another question entirely.
