Coveted: Homestar Aqua Planetarium


There's one thing I really wanted to bring home from Japan but didn't: the Homestar Aqua Planetarium.

You see, in Japan, there's a whole category of gadgets designed around relaxation. From glowing humidifiers to floating fountains for the tub - it's serious business. I fell in love with the idea of this little planetarium for the bath but didn't want to carry it around in my luggage when I found it at the very start of the trip. Luckily, you can find them online here for just a little bit more. It's at the top of my Christmas wish list!

The video for the planetarium is perfectly Japanese, especially with the ubiquitous soothing samba playing in the background.

I thought one of these would be cool to have, but I was put off by the negative reviews. Do you think the Japanese one works better?

It's hard to say because I haven't seen it in action. But it seems rad and promises 10,000 stars with some accurate constellations.
