USB Lighter Has KOOL Design, No Flame

November 5, 2007


Nathan Gabriele has conceptualized a USB device that can light cigarettes without the use of a flame, using resistance coils (like car lighters) instead. It would contain a battery cell that would be good for a number of uses, and could be recharged via USB. He also threw in some flash memory, just for shits and giggles. Not the worst thing I've ever seen, although why you'd design it to look like a Zippo with a KOOL logo on the side makes absolutely no sense. The logical choice would have been something that looked like a breast (complete with nipple) and had a rubber texture. Come on designers, just because it's a lighter doesn't mean it has to look like one. Think outside the box.
