WATERLOO — The heavy steel door inside Room 1018 of the Engineering 5 building at the University of Waterloo looks more like a bank vault than the entrance to a laboratory.
When you step inside, however, the outside world just melts away. The background noise of automobile traffic, air conditioners, birds and even the wind in the trees is silenced. This is the anechoic chamber at UW, a $15 million research lab and the quietest spot in Waterloo Region.
