Smoking propylene glycol (… with some nicotine)

pc130004Wikipedia knew them, I didn’t.

When Iñaki took my to a mall last year (it was just before Christmas), we went past an exhibition booth. They were trying to sell “Electronic Cigarettes” as an alternative to traditional smoking. It sounded like a complete gadget when we went past it the first time. But when we saw it a second time I got the feeling that they meant it serious. And they did.

An “e-cig” contains real nicotine. At least it can contain real nicotine. That depends on what flavor cartridges you choose. It is added to the air once you breath through this e-cig.

They even put a little LED in the front of the cigarette to make it look as if it was glowing. According to Wikipedia, they also offer blue and green LEDs. That must look stupid ;-).
