Hat of Mist

Hat of Mist emits vapour along the circumference of its edge where it fits against the contour of the wearer's head.

The mist is generated by a small, rechargeable device contained within the space between the hat and the top of the head, and is delivered via a series of small holes, much like those on a steam iron.

When you are moving about, the mist is quickly dispersed, but when you stand still, it swirls around your face, and spills down over your shoulders, prior to dispersing harmlessly.

Delux version has coloured mist!
Long-life version has backpack with extra storage, connected to hat via a discrete, flexible tube.

How about this, Mister? http://www.fountain....com/mister_foggers
Ultrasonic, produces actual tiny water droplets. Some of these devices are small enough to fit in a hat. Could be battery powered. [Amos Kito, Apr 30 2008]

       It would have the effect of making people look as though their heads had recently violently exploded, and were now settling down to a stage of quiet ensmoulderment amongst the remaining debris.   

       I'd quite like it if the mist were accompanied with a gentle fizzing noise.

       How about an attachment for MP3 players, so the density and colour (maybe fragrance as well) of the mist would change appropriately to the current song. That way I could listen to the Velvet Fog (Mel Torme) in an actual velvet fog.

       It is hard not to work up a head of steam about this product.

       That steams me up! Your mist aken visions are only vaporous outpourings bubbling forth from a cloudy head. This is the foggy bottom of all ideas!(+)

       Does this Hat have a silver lining by any chance ?

       //small holes, much like those on a steam iron//   

       So is this mist actually scalding steam? Or dry ice? Or something else? I only ask out of concern for [xandram]'s coiffure.

       For the wearer it would definitely improve self-e-steam [+].

       Don't wisp her, it's rude.   

       And try our new Steamboat Willy underwear range!
4whom, May 04 2008
  

       This would create a whole new category of hat-head.
mylodon, May 04 2008
  

       Cirrusly, it's a good idea.
bnip, May 11 2008
  

       Can the hat look like an UFO, with LEDs to light up the fog?
