Those crazy Japanese gadget makers are at it again ... this time it's a small USB powered humidifier (water vapour puffer) that gets the R2 treatment. :rolleyes:

Japanese R2-D2 USB Humidifier
Droid powered soothing moist air


In the dry desert climate of Tatooine the Sand People have a real complexion problem.

They've tried coating their skin with Bantha blubber and experimented with Jawa dung. However in the end the Sand People were forced to wrap their faces with strips of corse burlap and call it a day. That was until these R2-D2 USB Humidifiers came along.

Now the Sand People can fill these mini droids with water and plug them into their laptops for a soothing mist. We've found that the climate of some offices is almost as dry as Tatooine, so Earth based humans can enjoy as well.

I'm not sure having something puffing out water right next to your computer is really a good idea. A long USB extension cable might be an essential extra purchase.
