We all ever experience it. A 20-minute Zoom meeting is starting to hit 50 and doesn’t look like it will end anytime soon. Go around the same subject without resolving the subject for which everyone was summoned: for that it was developed “Zoom escaper”, an application to have a good argument to leave.
Created by developer and artist Sam Lavigne, Zoom Escaper is a web application that uses another application called VB-Cable to play a series of effects that might help you excuse yourself from a Zoom meeting.
These effects include the sounds you might get from a bad connection and echo, but also some creative ones, such as “fussy baby”, “dogs”, “urination” or even “crying man”.
Thus, the idea is to be able to leave without guilt but also with an excuse that gives you a little more in a way that wants to leave.
The problem is that using the Zoom Escaper requires installing a software called VB-Cable and then adjusting some settings. To crown the system, whoever uses the Zoom Escaper does not hear the annoying noise, but the rest do, which can make the situation unbearable. And there we have the excuse to leave.
Various specialized sites recommend not using this program: “To be clear, we do not recommend any of this. Sabotaging Zoom meetings is not pleasant. Using untested software from a single developer (although the source code is available, which is good) is not the best of ideas either, especially since it requires another application to run, “they explained from Mashable.
However, creativity on the web seems to have no limits.
