Biotech nose filters keep delicate nostrils oh-so clean

The impending hay fever season here is kinda uncomfortable in a ‘contents of your sinuses pouring out of your nose’ way, so it’s a joy to report that the geniuses at Bio International Japan have come up with a high-tech way to keep all that runny junk up there where it belongs.

The, er, Nose Mask Pit, is basically two pieces of gauze on a rubber plug for each nostril that you shove up your hooter. A discrete plastic cord runs between the two halves and apparently it’s almost invisible. Unless you look, that is.

Anyway, keeping out pollen and the various pollutants that make modern life so rubbish is clearly a good idea, so I’d be happy to pay the ¥1,480 ($14) each pack of eight costs. Oh, and there are four sizes, ranging from a Hello Kitty 8mm diameter to a Manilow-esque 13mm. Just try not to sneeze.
