Aurai may not be a name you’ve heard, but it’s one you might be interested in hearing more about. Today, Aurai has launched a Kickstater campaign for their cool/warm water-propelled eye massager. We all spend a lot of time looking at various screens, and otherwise straining our eyes. Aurai wants to help rejuvenate your eyes with their massager.
I had the chance to try out an Aurai prototype and chat with the team at CES 2016, and I’ll just get this out of the way up front, I’ve already backed the Kickstarter. CES is a busy and tiring time. Getting to sit for a few minutes and relax and see what Aurai was all about completely sold me on the idea. I mean, just look at how freaking relaxed I look…
My comfort aside, I’m not the only one that seems to be excited about this project. The Kickstarter campaign opened this morning, and only a few hours later, they’ve nearly hit their $50,000 goal. They’re so close that they’ll probably hit their goal and be completely funded before I even finish writing this paragraph — clearly the idea is a popular one. And look, they’ve just passed their funding goal! Just barely under four hours in, and already funded. You’re going to want to check this project out.
If curiosity hasn’t gotten the better of you yet and you need a bit more information first, let’s get started. We all spend a lot of time staring at screens. Computer monitors, our smartphones, TV’s, tablets, you name it, we’re looking at it. When we’re busy staring at these screens, we are sometimes less likely to blink, causing our eyes to dry out or generally become irritated. Aurai uses both cool and warm water circulation and massage to rejuvenate your eyes, and generally relax you.
I had the opportunity to run through both the cool and warm settings, as well as several stages of eye massage and it was definitely quite relaxing. The Aurai unit brings the water up, or down, to the appropriate temperature quickly, and while it felt slightly unusual at first, the massaging aspect definitely left my eyes feeling more refreshed. Check out Aurai’s Kickstarter video below for more information.
There are still a couple of the early-bird tier packages left, which gets you an Aurai unit for $119 plus shipping. Even if the early-bird special is sold out, there are still special Kickstarter packages available for $149. Aurai is expected to retail for $239, so getting in on the Kickstarter will definitely save you a few bucks. If you’re interested in ordering more than one, there are special tiers open for 2, 4, and even 10 packs of the device.
Have I piqued your interest? You’ve got plenty of time to back the Kickstarter, as I’ve mentioned it just opened this morning. They’ll be running for another 59 days, in which time I expect they’ll get quite a few backers. If you want to hit any of the early-bird tiers though, you’ll probably want to hurry, those probably aren’t going to last too much longer. You can get even more information about Aurai and how the device works on their Kickstarter page.Source: Kickstarter
