Friend in a Fan
Feeling a little under the weather as I returned home; I had lectured for about 6 hours with a sore throat and by 1430 my voice was shot, a little squeak.
So I made myself some sage tea and collapsed on a sofa with this Friend-in-a-Fan to move the warm air around and to create the sensation, illusion, of cool.
It worked, and it was the obvious choice for a blip. It's a USB fan, about 15 cm across and not too noisy. The hub design looks Asian, I suppose, quite attractive – particularly when it's creating the right illusion, a cool one.
