    Asthmanex inhalers (my son uses for daily asthma control) ´╗┐ are a great example of the provide feedback principle you could use in your presentation vs. the regular asthma inhaler. It has a counter to let you know how many doses are left AND clicks so you can hear your next dose is properly loaded.
