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).
