If awards for cuteness alone have been handed out, the Casamista portable humidifier from Umbra, with its residence-shaped bottle cap, may possibly win a bushel of prizes. But it has, fortunately, functional merits as well. Casamista, created by Alan Wisniewski, fits standard water bottles, and goes to operate when powered with batteries (not included) or USB cable (incorporated). A water filtering straw sends water by means of tiny pinholes beneath the “house”, which then generates steam via its “chimney,” gently humidifying dry indoor air, all the while infusing a area with a touch of whimsy. And for a much more aromatic expertise, Casamista is receptive to important oils, too.
