I've just had to replace my old one - nothing wrong with the mechanism, just one of the silicone seals where the humidifier attaches split, and Fisher & Paykel no longer carry spare parts (model was discontinued about 5 years ago). If you were local, I could let you try it and/or have it cheap. Cost me over $1000 just for some split silicone, which was bloody annoying.
It doesn't matter how often or hard you fall on your arse, eventually you'll roll over and land on your feet.
Compressed air can? (Of the sort used for airbrush painting). It would probably need a restricting valve to reduce air flow, and of course when it's gone it's gone. But a simple press on the nozzle starts airflow and there's no mechanical noise.
Interesting. I didn't even know these existed. I would still prefer something with limitless on-demand air supply but this could be worth trying if there's a reasonable way to switch the supply on and off with an Arduino.

Small compressor motor that blows up a balloon. The balloon is attached to a tee with a check valve on the compressor side and an electrically activated valve on the whistle side. Compressor blows up the balloon when needed, and the balloon blows the slide whistle when you actuate the valve.
We won't sit down.
We won't shut up.
We won't go quietly away.
There are seven houses,
In each house there are seven cats,
Each cat catches seven mice,
Each mouse would have eaten seven ears of corn,
If sown, each ear of corn would have produced seven heqat of grain.
How many things are mentioned altogether?
(They made me sick with all those new things today, so before you the oldest known - written - puzzle, form Egypt)
