Privacy-preserving microphone: does this product exist yet?

I envision a microphone with some kind of rubber, snorkel-like end that affixes over the entire mouth and lips, so that people in the room with you can neither hear nor see what you're saying.
Hopeless wishful thinking? (I've tried Googling but I'm not sure how to describe this idea succinctly.)
I'd be equally interested in other ways I could make personal calls without bothering strangers in the subway, at the gym, on a plane, etc.
