ELECTRICITY OPERATES “FIRELESS PIPE” (May, 1936)
ELECTRICITY OPERATES “FIRELESS PIPE”
A “fireless pipe,” operated by electricity, has been devised by a Toronto, Canada, physician, who maintains that it prevents the inhalation of harmful carbon monoxide and reduces fire hazard by eliminating the use of matches. Tobacco is volatilized by a heating element and the fumes are breathed in the usual way. One model is shaped like a standard pipe; another, built into a table lamp, has tubes for several smokers at once.
