The Talk to Yourself Hat transmits sounds from one’s mouth directly into one’s ears via a conspicuous, trunk-like tube. As such, it playfully encourages a user to actually speak out, without worrying about privacy, when in conversation with herself. The hat also acknowledges, communicates, and legitimizes an act that is sometimes regarded as shameful.
