The Fogring – a travel humidifier for steam on the go

A humidifier is one of those things you don’t realise you need… until you really, really need it.

Anyone who has spent any length of time in a very dry climate (or even on a long flight) knows the value of a humidifier. But it’s not something you are likely to pack for your next holiday. Or is it?

The Fogring is a simple, portable humidifier that works by using ultrasonic vibrations to turn liquids into vapour. Although the technology is not new, the compact delivery is. All that’s required is a full cup or glass of water, a USB connection and the Fogring – which looks like a plastic doughnut and is available in a variety of pretty pastel colours. The Fogring can also be used as an aroma diffuser for on-the-go aromatherapy.

I’d be slightly nervous balancing my laptop next to a full glass of water on the tray table on a plane (recipe for disaster!) but I would happily rig the Fogring up when I arrived at my very hot, dry beach destination!

The Fogring is still in the early stages of development so is not available quite yet – we’ll keep you posted.
