I’m not much of a smoker, but that doesn’t stop me from owning a few Zippos just because they’re fun to play with. This flameless USB lighter from designer Nathan Gabriele might not be quite as fun, but it is a lot more practical. Instead of fluid, the lighter uses resistance coils powered by a battery, which is recharged via a USB port. There’s even some flash memory in there for good measure. Now all it needs is an SD card slot and a headphone jack and some ice blue LEDs and I’ll never need to buy another gadget ever again.
