RAT allows its user (the deceiver), the opportunity to fool those he/she is phoning (the receiver), that their situation is different to their true location. Product Launched at 100% Design and Work Place ‘01.

Been working late again while everyone else goes drinking, deadlines, meant you’ve missed going on a long summer holiday?

Simply select the background sound of your choice, phone friends, family and colleagues and let them know how full your life is. Nobody need ever know that you’re really stuck alone in the office again.

Six sound cubes offer a variety of appropriate audio backgrounds that are easily selected by placing the sound cube of your choice in the recess by the side of the telephone. The sound background plays through the integrated sound system at a level sufficient to fool the receiver of the call of your whereabouts.
