A case of mild autism has made him extremely sensitive to noise. Vincelette, who lives in a spaceship-style house, thinks music, especially top 40, rap and rock ‘n’ roll, ‘sounds the same way feces smells.’

Vincelette used his genius-level IQ and parts of household microwave ovens to develop a makeshift device that uses electromagnetic waves to temporarily jam the circuitry of his neighbors’ stereos.

Barney Vincelette purchased his unusual house from a catalog and erected it on his Houston lot. While he revels in its ‘geometric simplicity,’ his wife, Carol, says it doesn’t have enough space.”
