Dummy e-cigarette

Stealth smoking

This new product from BorgCo looks just like an e-cigarette, but in fact it's just a tube to hold a real cigarette, and contain the ash.

It has a built-in electric igniter.

Insert cigarette, close tube. Press button to light. Inhale smoke.

Useful in places that ban smoking but permit e-cigarettes.

       This is probably your best idea ever, including the future. If I had to guess, I would say that you are a reformed ex-smoker (by which I mean an ex-smoker who has reformed by starting smoking again).

       //ex-smoker who has reformed by starting smoking again//   

       Why did you start again ?   

       One month today !

       Evidence that smoking bans have nothing to do with smoke or the risk of fire is presented with the wide concurrent bans on e-cigarettes. It's not about stopping people from smoking where it presents a risk to someone else, it's about controlling others.

       Unreformed non-smoker.

       This annoys all the right people, so have an unreformed bun. Now, can you create some form of hollowed out spinach and fill it with bacon? I have never smoked, but I get occasional hassle from the proselytizing health cult devotees with their pro-leaf agenda. Also, just to really muddy the waters, a fake e cigarette for non smokers, just an led on a stick.

       We are all descended from reformed peas.

       That Gregor Mendel clearly has a lot to answer for.

       An e-cigarette shaped to look like a dummy would be an excellent way to get babies and toddlers into the habit early.

       Something like a hookah - conventional dummy, thin tube, vapourizer nearby - on a lanyard ?   

       You should post that.

       I'm trying to visualize reformed peas, but keep seeing whirrled.   

       Can the stench become stealth as well?

       Regrettably, no.

       Are you sure about that ? The future's a big place; although for you, and all the other inhabitants of your planet, perhaps not quite as big as you expect, or would want ....
