Apparently, smartphones really do have everything we need, from cameras to calculators to flashlights to even… matchsticks?
You read that right. But instead of shooting flames out of a port, your phone can now create fire by activating a Bluetooth-enabled scented candle called Candle Touch, currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter. Said to be the world’s first smart-connected real-flame candle, the device has an electronic base that connects to a scented coconut-wax candle body. At a press of a button using the accompanying iOS/Android app, the base sends a current up a wire, which ignites the cotton wick like magic.
You’ll never have to risk getting burned ever again. Plus, you’ll have a neat party trick to show to all your friends.
