For the moment, there is no hands-free e-cig. There may be one or two wacky prototypes in the research lab, but there’s nothing you can buy online or in any store that comes close to hands-free steaming. 

Come on, imagine that. Lying in the bathtub, rubber duck in one hand and magazine in the other. You’re steaming. Huge clouds of your favorite flavor double with the steam and you feel happier than ever. Or imagine yourself standing in a leather jacket with an electronic cigarette clenched between your teeth. Every time you draw, the tip lights up and the steam flows out without having to hold down the button. The tragedy is that you can’t do these things. At least not yet. But remember, steaming is brand new. And the technology is evolving rapidly. Five years ago, there were fewer brands, models and options than there are now. Custom electronic cigarettes and stylish all-in-one pens have made leaps forward in the last decade alone. Who can say what we’ll have in five years, or even two?

Alternatives to the Vape Button

First of all, let’s imagine how we can replace the need to press the button with your hand. After all, we can find a way to keep the rig in the air. There’s enough light to clench in your teeth. Pushing the button is, so far, the most limiting factor between us and the freedom of our hands.

The button of the tooth-clamp

So the first idea is a button that you can press with your teeth. This is a cool trigger theory for any rig or you just want to hold the e-cig or mouthpiece directly in your mouth and leave it there. Then, when you’re ready to take a hit, you pull the coil by squeezing a strategically placed button between your teeth and then drawing. A snap button is most likely something we see with early commercial models for hands-free vaporizing.

The Air Flow Trigger

Of course, what we all hope to see is a very sophisticated device that can simply detect when we draw and pull the reel at exactly that time. That’s what would ultimately turn the vault into a near perfect simulation of smoking. And it is mechanically possible to do that, at least in theory. All you would need is an airflow sensor, much like a simple party noise generator, that can detect when you breathe in and trigger the coil. Sensor-dependent airflow triggers are likely to take a few generations of hands-free vaporizing to develop because they are more sensitive and prone to error.

Hands Free Vaping Styles :

Now that we’ve thought about the technology, let’s predict what hands-free vaporizing will look like when vampire brands finally start prototyping.

The Vape Hat

If you were to try to install a hands-free vaporizer rig today, what would it look like? Here at Velvet Cloud, you can bet we thought of tying boxwood to a hat and passing through the pipes attached to the drip ends. After all, wouldn’t that be the best way to make a megavape in the bathtub or to hold the barbecue pit in the summer? That’s what we think. And we’re confident that other vapers will find the idea just as hilarious. We’re not sure that any legitimate electronic cig or mod brand will actually develop vampire hats, but we hope that the vampire community is already working on this classic half-measure for hands-free vaporizing. Send us your photos of mod boxes taped to the hats.

The perfect “Cig-Alike”

Of course, many vapers dream of a different hands-free dream. If you’re looking to simulate everything about smoking, except cancer, hands-free vaporizing offers you the promise of a perfect imitation of smoking. Lightweight, slim, with a pneumatically controlled atomizer that triggers when you pull instead of pushing a button. We believe it’s possible. I don’t know who’s going to do it, or when, but the technology exists for brands to work on refining the perfect hands-free cigarette design. While we’re at it, let’s not forget to require a glowing LED at the end that lights up in response to the pull trigger and realistically turns off at the end of your shot.

The Cruella Deville

And then there is the super cigar look-alike, which twirls through a long Cruella Deville great cigarette holder. In theory, the perfect cigarette look-alike could fit into a normal cigarette holder. But who doesn’t want to hold a dramatically long e-cig that also happens to draw exactly when you draw on the end? That is certainly the case. Although the long stem makes it less mechanically viable, it would be cool if we could have hands-free e-cigs (that’s a lot of dashes) in the near future.

The interlocking teeth

A much more realistic design is the design of the interlocking tooth cigarette. A light but truncated cigar-shaped electronic cigarette designed to clench between your teeth as if you were an old school movie general speaking to the troops. This type of e-cig could fit between the molars of someone who wanted to walk around in the vaping without getting their hands dirty. From there, the vaper could choose to clench his teeth on a button on the mouthpiece to activate the reel and make the steam flow for a long suction.

The Minerve Harmonica

Finally, we would like to pose the probably ridiculous idea of harmonica support. You know what we’re talking about, that weird support used in one-man bands so that the artist can play the harmonica without holding the harmonica in their hands. Well, you could use the same idea to support a vaulting pen right next to your mouth so that it only took a little bit of pressure to take a long push button or an air-operated pull. Chances are, this is another one that e-cig brands won’t play with, but amateurs might. And if you already have one, we want to see it! —. The hands-free vaporizer is just around the corner. We have all the technology, we have companies researching better vault designs right now. By predicting the future, we can make it happen.
