given i'm still on the tail end of a cold and cough, this would be useful  
It's the Lung Flute, a simple device designed to assist the lung cilia in moving mucus from the lungs and thus up and out. It looks amazing.

Article on the Lung Flute, and its inventor. Very cool.

We use these ( http://www.smiths-medical.com/catalog/bronchial-hygiene/acapella/acapella.html ) at our hospital, which sort of do the same thing.

These companies are very good with the names - acapella, lung flute. Funny! The devices look awesome, though...
