Virtual Smoking

A “cigar” as an Input Device
  [vote for,

The device would look like a cigar only produce virtual smoke when in a virtual environment. One could presumably control the amount of smoke.

This would be a physical device but as an input device create only virtual smoke when puffed on. Smoke would be overlayed across the users VR goggles...the smoke amount/color/cloud density bing user controlled.

       Depending on the "virtual environment" this has been made many times. As for an e-cigar, I wouldn't want one: the smoke isn't smokey enough.

       ...almost but not quite...I’ll modify my description.

       Excellent idea. Could be used with any screen interface - desktop, laptop, maybe have a bluetooth connection for use with a phone. [+]

       @poc Even better. Said “cigar” could also function as an input device in general that functions by puffing and/or tapping. Possibly also a great 3D cursor of sorts.

       Yes like an air mouse in cigar form factor

       ...except puffing on an air mouse is no fun 🤪
