A learning lighter to quit smoking
Slighter is a smart, chemical-free lighter than learns your smoking habits to help you cut down or quit. Connected to a mobile app, Slighter records the user’s habits for one week (how many cigarettes you are smoking, when, where, how much you spend on cigarettes, etc.) and then builds a quitting program. The app sends regular notifications of times they are allowed to smoke, one step at a time on the way to giving up completely.
A frugal innovation for a good cause: tobacco kills more than 7 million people each year around the world according to WHO. Since summer 2017, the prototype version of the lighter is tested by beta testers before the final product launch.
