Humidifier Time

It's so cold outside and warm and dry inside. You need a humidifier if you don't want your nose and mouth to feel like dry sandpaper, 50 grit. Check out designer Naoto Fukasawa's electronics company, PlusMinusZero. The humidifier looks good all year long and is whisper quiet. It's for Japan only but you can talk Compact Impact and they will get it for you. Stay warm and moist.
