Cactus / humidifier


The Cactus is an eco-friendly personal humidifier that can be used easily even in small spaces due to its revolutionary compact size. Moreover the Cactus can be put on any bottles (PET, glass etc.) of different colors and shapes allowing the user to create their own humidifier. The Cactus saves our planet by proactively encouraging people to re-use bottles.
This project is inspired by the fact that most bottles are have similarly-sized mouths. The small pump pulls up water from the bottle through the straw and vapor is generated with the ultrasonic wave generator. A small fan pushes vapor into the 3 nozzles then distribute it in the air.
