A pair of South Korean electrical engineers have worked out a new porn filter that analyzes audio for tell-tale signs of things you really shouldn't be watching at work. By using sound, they avoid the problem of visual porn-identifiers (pornifiers) that can get tricked by any expanse of skin, as in closeups of the face or other not-inappropriate body parts.
