noseligjt 614x423 Draft Sensing Noselight Glows When You Breathe

Weird?  Certainly.  Slightly disturbing? Arguably.  Wonderful?  I think so, yes.

I featured a picture of creator Noda Akira showing his device off at Make Tokyo Meeting 07 in last week’s MAKE Flickr pool roundup, and Akira himself turned up in the comments to identify himself, claim credit for the device, and link to the embedded video showing off how it works.  The text is in Japanese, but the video is well made and gets the point across nicely even if you can’t read it.  I wonder how much it occludes the airway?  Could you wear one in each nostril without feeling like you were down with a head cold? [Thanks, Akira!]
