Air for sale

Japanese convenience store operator Seven-Eleven Japan has breathed fresh air into its product lineup by announcing it will add cans of oxygen to its shelves. The firm said it would make an entry into the rapidly expanding oxygen market and begin selling cans of oxygen on May 24. Mainichi notes:

Oxygen has emerged as a popular new product and sparked the creation of city "oxygen bars" that provide oxygen for customers to breathe in. The convenience store operator will sell small portable cans. It is the first retailer among Japanese convenience stores and supermarkets to enter the oxygen market.

Hakugen, that makes the novel oxygen sprays, is best known for its alarm clocks that wake you with scents: By mixing two scents plus eucalyptus mint, starting some 30 minutes before your alarm goes off, you can drift from dreaming to awakening by pleasant smells. Well, they sell water too, so why not air? Just what the doctor ordered...
