A device for generating a spray of mist or fine droplets includes a spinning rotor within a mist chamber. The rotor has inner walls which taper conically outwardly from the open bottom of the rotor to a hole near the top of the rotor. Liquid is pumped by a finger actuated pump from a cartridge module into a bowl surrounding the bottom end of the rotor. A spray is created as the liquid is formed into droplets as it passes through the hole in the rotor under centrifugal force. A directional light source is used for aiming the spray.
[ I claim:] [1.] A mist generator comprising:a housing;a mist rotor in the housing having at least one mist hole, rotatably supported substantially within a mist chamber;a motor linked to the mist rotor;a pump adjustable to deliver a varying volume of fluid with each actuation of the pump attached to the housing, and separate from the mist rotor for supplying a fluid medium to the mist rotor.
