Aurai is a water-filled eye massager to sooth your peepers

Eyes aching? That’ll be the hours of staring at a screen. Fear not, help is at hand (or eye, rather). Meet Aurai, the world’s first water-filled eye massager.

It looks a bit like a virtual reality headset. Strap it on, and you can choose from two modes. Cool compress helps regulate the blood circulation around your eyes and relieve strain. This mode also helps alleviate puffy eyes, dark circles around them, and itching and watery eyes.

Warm compress, meanwhile, stimulates the oil glands and helps prevent clotting, which should help your eyes relax.

You can switch between the two modes, helping the blood to circulate, and bringing oxygen and nutrients to the areas around the eyes.

It’s like a mini workout for your ocular zones.

The water bag is made of hypo-allergenic silicone, and includes a face mask that moulds to any face shape. Well, it sure beats placing a slice of cucumber over each eye.

You control it using the remote. It has four buttons, so is pretty simple to use, and has a detachable water bottle for simple maintenance.

It’s raised more than twice its funding goal and still has more than 50 days to go. Some of the early birds have sold out, but you can still nab one for $129 (£90). It’ll ship in September.
