Electronic Cigarette and Open Source?

Oh my goodness! I just saw a banner add for Electronic Cigarette, the geek in me became curious... so I found this video about it on youtube.com... posted by... http://www.youtube.com/user/isgodreligious





I may freak'in be crazy, but it got me thinking about an open source e-cigarette and as always on the Internet we are never alone in our ideas.

Wish I had time to play with the idea (fyi--I don't smoke! Just a geek that thinks building one of these with an ATMEL AVR processor or MicroChip PIC and publishing the BOM (bill of materials) and schematics would be very very cool. Maybe I could find some time, since it is so closely related to Health Care and the FDA (see the other videos posted at http://www.youtube.com/user/isgodreligious which show the FDA discussions on Electronic Cigarettes. Maybe I should push this Blog Post over to http://blog.healthgeek.org).

Those were just some of the few things you know about e-cigs, but there's more. Electronic cigarettes comes out with its own kit and accessories. Just like this one on the link.

the usual package for best electric cigarette comes with a battery, charger and the electronic cigarette itself. Some promo could offer you to choose an extra battery or an extra electronic cigar.

E-cigarettes, also known as electronic cigarettes and vaporizer cigarettes are devices that emit doses of vaporized nicotine that are inhaled. The device is battery-operated and can also emit non-nicotine vaporized solutions. Manufacturers say they are an alternative for tobacco smokers who want to avoid inhaling smoke. Tobacco smoke contains over 4,000 different chemicals, many of which are hazardous for human health. Get your nicotine from firms like VZ who provides Pure Nicotine Liquid.Premium quality e cig liquid nicotine & E juice. Get your e-cig today... Thanks.

Electronic cigarettes are by far the best alternative to smoking, and each year they are getting better and better with technology I wont be surprised if they eventually build them as part of your mobile phone lol, but I got the Joyetech Cuboid, which is one of the best technical e cigs out there!
