Supposedly there is a new hoseless cpap design, all self-contained in a nasal pillow, called "Airing" seeking crowdfunding in June on Indiegogo.

I think the hype is more about getting people interested so they help fund it.
I'd wait until it is an actual approved shipping product before putting much hope in it.

I'm picturing a miniature air pump in each nostril! Bad if you sneezed! Oh dear.

Some interesting ideas, but I think it's a long way from being something that will actually work and be easily available.
I'm particularly skeptical about the battery life.

there's an app for that

Found a link to it via Facebook. Pft. Thing is way too small in the concept images to even be real. They're getting people's hopes up just to bring in funding. While maybe they can get an airpump that small, no way they can get a battery that small, that lightweight, that efficient to last all night.
Nasal pillow only so you'd have to use a chin strap unless they mount it to a nasal mask or FFM.
Any data it stored would have to be via bluetooth. Even a microSD would need a writer/reader attached to your nose.

It looks cool, but can a tiny battery run "hundreds of micro blowers"?

I took a look at that thing and I cannot conceive how it would generate enough flow to work. How do they get "hundreds of micro blowers" in there to move that much air?
Was this announcement released on 01 APR by any chance? Or will it maybe come with a pint of Dr. MacGillicutty's Miracle Molasses which is abaolutely guaranteed to cure every ailment under the sun, including BO?
