I would love to be able to give up my expensive lotion habit and put that money toward a new flat screen TV (or shoes, whatever), but I have a hard time believing this air conditioner from Hitachi (found by the one and only Mr. Frucci) could replace my beloved Aveda, Kiehl's, Jergens, etc. (what? different parts) and moisturize my skin.
But then again, you can't argue with science. Hitachi claims this A/C "condenses moisture in the air with a Peltier device and applies high voltage to the water to produce electrically-charged minute water particles. The particles attach to the skin and, with moisture in the air attracted by the electric charge, soak into it."
Interesting, but is it total dorkdom to use your home appliances as your beauty regimen, or would you put this in your house and kill two birds with one stone?
