A team at Harvard’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering has developed a research system that can smoke cigarettes. The gatling gun style system has a mechanical element that can light and puff cigarettes to get the smoke.
A lighter that can help you quit smoking? It may seem stupid at first, but the more I learn about Quitbit, the less ridiculous it seems. While it does help you light up – to ensure that you’ll take it with you – it also tracks your smoking habits and provides other motivational data and features to help you curb your bad habit.

While most of us are off enjoying our shiny new iPhones and Droids, those of you who prefer your phones ugly, bulky, and loaded with nicotine might want to check this out.
Now why you’d want a cell phone that looks like a pack of cigarettes is anyone’s guess.
Our Fun for Two Minutes Gadget of the Day is a cigarette lighter that’s shaped like a cigarette. That’s like a bread knife that’s shaped like bread. Or a space shuttle that’s shaped like space. Use it as an icebreaker or a mustache-burning prank.
I’m really not sure who the target audience is for this odd mobile phone handset. Maybe it’s for people trying to quit smoking? Or is it for people who want to look like they’re smokers? Regardless, you sure will look goofy making your phone calls into this thing.
Every time I think I’ve seen every possible USB flash memory gimmick, another one comes along and does something I never thought was necessary. This flash drive not only stores your precious files, it’s got a built-in cigarette lighter.
