It’s not high-tech in the sense that it’s electronic or Wi-Fi enabled but it is made of high quality low-profile medical grade flexible silicon. And their designers seem to have really thought this one though. It features recessed grooves, which allows for proper airflow between your fingers while keeping the water out but still hugging nicely to your finger without stopping your blood’s circulation. Read more…at Canoe Tech Blog.

Review: Dyson UV Cleansing Humidifier

Depending on where you live, you know how dry it can get indoors, particularly during the cold weather where besides dry skin, many people may exhibit chapped lips, sinus issues and a nightmare for some allergy sufferers. It also generates static, which can wreak havoc on your electronics. That’s when it’s a good time to ensure you have a decent humidifier to help you breathe easier and keep the “nasties” away.

I had given up on furnace mount humidifiers a long time ago, after going through a few of them; they either seized up due to calcification or unevenly humidified rooms. Some rooms were poorly humidified while others had condensation buildup on the windows. I resorted to using a run-of-the-mill portable ultrasonic humidifier in the sleeping area and living room that I felt more or less did the job until I took the Dyson AM10 Humidifier for a test drive for a month.  Read more…at Canoe Tech Blog.
