mostpeoplecall it vaping as a kind of term for vaporizing .
maybe as we talk we can come up with something a little more .
better than that you don't like vaping .
I don't love it .
just in case you haven't heard of vaping let me tell you all about it this is what you guys do all day vape it up these are smokeless cigarettes I hesitate the word sucking The tech industry's attempt to re-engineer smoking Do I inhale at the same time as like a cigarette ?
Like a cigarette .
I visited Silicon Valley-based Thermo essence Technologies where they are designing and manufacturing their own high-tech vaporizer It's kinda warm .
No it's not It's not supposed to hurt .
It does not involve combustion which is taking a flame to tobacco and burning it Instead what happens here is the tobacco is heated That's where you'd put it and turned into vapor .
you can inhale and exhale that vapor but you don't get combustion So A you're not destroying the material that you're trying to inhale anyway and B you don't have the negative side effects and consequences of smoke .
We're not regulated by the fda but we in a way self-regulate It helps us sleep at night knowing we're not giving people something that can off gas or can melt .
would people look at this and say it's an electronic cigarette ?
some of our products are certainly what we would consider performance electronic cigarette and we actually build our atomizers the little magic part of the device that generates the vapor is our technology that we build right here you know ten feet over that way .
you have a clean metal tube that is electoless nickle plated There is no solder no plastic no unknown materials in there .
It's this precision technology that has made Thermo Essence vaporizers popular here and around the world I'm trying to figure out if I can hold it in a cooler way .
you look pretty cool .
You're just saying that I feel kinda Sherlock Holmes-y looks fun right but that was without nicotine You wanna try some nicotine Of course you do I don't know I do actually cause I wanna know how it tastes how 'bout a dose that a lifetime smoker would consume Seriously you swear to god that's not killing me because that is awful after a few more puffs I realized this maybe was not my thing I'm sweating like that is .
but the folks at thermo Essence Technologies clearly see a future where tobacco and other substances like medical marijuana could be delivered in a safer way than smoking and then there's way way into the future when who knows what we might inhale .
people are looking at flavored liquids as a way to kind of satiate your desire to eat a sweet you know and so as a potential weight loss or as a potential curb your cravings method you get that flavor and that feeling .
So I could just have like a little espresso and then a little chocolate bean .
yeah the guy at harvard made inhalable lobster .
I don't wanna inhale that but maybe in The matrix like future where we just can't or if we can't farm them anymore Vapor-doodle-do for Always On at CNET .com I'm molly Wood I don't know now I'm just goofing off
