Eolos pipe brings smoking into the 21st century

Pipe smokers have thus far missed out on much of the techno-fun, but now designer Hakan Bogazpinar comes to their rescue with Eolos. Never mind that it looks like some kind of sophisticated weapon — it has a built-in "filter replication indicator," letting the geeky nicotine addict know when that filter is ripe for changing.

Far be it from us to wish for tools to encourage smoking, but maybe the idea could be elaborated upon, vaporizing dangerous tobacco smoke into pure nicotine for less carcinogenic harm. Nice design, but if it were any more techy looking, people might start telling you to get well soon, thinking you have a digital thermometer in your mouth.
