Blink Mister

Preventing dry-eye syndrome

Staring at computer (and phone, and tablet) screens reduces blink rates and causes dry-eye syndrome.

To remedy this, a device could mist water towards your face at timed or random intervals. Not even a spray as dense as a plant-mister - just a milligram or less of moisture added to a tiny puff of air.

For a computer, it could be powered by USB and consist of a reservoir mounted behind the display. For smaller portable devices it would need to be battery powered and perhaps built into an accessory case.

       I'm on to your schemes, 8th. No, thank you.

       Not quite. Watched carefully - but from a safe distance.

       A hay mister would prevent ricks from catching fire in the summer heat, a yeo mister would be popular with the yeomanry and an oi mister might find a market among students of Yiddish for Beginners who suffered from dry throats.   

       A duck mister seems urgently needed, though I'm not quite sure wh ... Ow!
