Nendo invents the burning electronic cigarette

A third possibility halfway between electronic and traditional, Nendo’s new cigarette is a hybrid between tradition and innovation.

En, Nendo, 2018

An electronic cigarette called “en”, because in Japanese it means “fire”. The designer Nendo creates a third cigarette, halfway between the electronic cigarette and the traditional one, in which the lighter is needed. It works in a simple way: just like the electronic cigarette needs to be recharged, by putting a capsule on the tip of it, but then just like a traditional cigarette is accessed with the lighter. Heating with the flame makes the taste better, but this cigarette, like the electronic one, allows to heat the leaves of tobacco without burning them. It has no battery, and according to the Japanese designer, it does not make it uncomfortable as can happen with the electronic cigarette. The case is in leather, and it contains also the new capsules, a lighter, and the used capsules.
