A New Kind of SMS: Smoke Messaging Service?

iPhone Smoke Signals Case

 

Back in the day, our ancestors used to communicate to one another using nothing but smoke signals. Now you can do as what they did in the past (with slight modifications) with the SMS case, with SMS standing for “smoke messaging service.” It’s a case designed by Dennis de Bel which hides a chamber filled with lamp oil inside.

When the button on the side is pressed, the case heats the lamp oil up to produce wispy clouds of smoke. Of course, in order to respond via smoke as well, others will also have to have an SMS case or another contraption that can produce smoke.

Seems a little backward in this day and age of instant communication, so maybe that’s one point Dennis wanted to touch on with his project.
