Here's an item from the “I bet you didn't even know you needed this” department. Vapor Corp sent out a press release from CES. In that presser, they announced their new e-cigarette with biometric technology set to be released for the 2014 holiday shopping season.
“The next trend in alternative smoking devices is the personalized vaporizer that incorporates the technology that we expect from our high-end tech devices. Today we are debuting the newest technology in this space,” says Kevin Frija, CEO of Vapor Corp. “By incorporating this biometric user identity technology into the Vapor Xpersonal vaporizer, the door is opened to many customizable features. The fingerprint lock security allows customers to protect their device from use by another individual and this same technology will lead to the development of additional features and controls,” continues Frija. “Much like the fitness mobile app technology we have seen gain recent popularity, vaporizer users will soon be able to download their 'vaping' statistics through a corresponding mobile application in order to track exactly how often they use the device.”
We've seen some technology that links up to computers with the eVic and the announced French e-cigarette. But, I wasn't aware there was a need to securely lock an e-cigarette til now.
