State of Vape: Is This The Future of Vaping?

State of Vape: Is This The Future of Vaping?

There are many questions circulating around the state of vape today. The team has talked about legislation, regulation, and other issues that may affect your access to flavors and more. But in this State of Vape, we’re looking to the future of vaping. What will the vaping experience look like in the long term? Could there be different flavors? What innovations might drive the vaping industry?

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has definitely altered the way we work and live for the foreseeable future. Mass gatherings have been indefinitely suspended. That means no clubbing or going to the bars with your friends, and no seeing your favorite band(s) in concert. It is estimated that these events may resume as early as fall 2021. What about bringing a sense of normal back to society? Production Club wants to do that as soon as possible. The Micrashell claims to be one of the latest innovations in PPE. However, life after COVID-19 will never be the same.

The Connection to Vaping

One of the features of the Micrashell is that there are snap-in canisters for vaping on the prototype suit. The other canister is for alcoholic beverages, but there are no indications that both can’t be used for vaping (imagine being able to vape two of your favorite eLiquids at once!). Head of inventions Miguel “Mike 808” Risueno of Production Club says, “It’s a half suit that kind of takes your safety and your security in terms of being close to airborne particles or viruses to the next level. We need to make sure that people want to wear it and they feel good about wearing it. So it’s a little bit more of a fashion piece rather than something that looks like a medical device.”

With COVID-19 and vaping on a collision course in the news, this may be the compromise between the two topics. The Micrashell may actually change the literal state of vape because it will bring vaping into your own personal space. The team believes vaping is a personal experience. You can do whatever you want with it—if you like nicotine salts or certain flavor profiles, there’s an eLiquid out there for everyone.

The vaping canisters may encourage eJuice manufacturers to experiment with new methods of storage beyond the current plastic bottles. In addition, hardware manufacturers may find inspiration in the Micrashell to create their own idea of a “vaping suit”, sparking interest in vaping apparel that goes beyond T-shirts and hats that bear vape manufacturer logos.

While the Micrashell was intended to be rented out at nightclubs, concerts, and other large gatherings, there is a chance for the vaping industry to innovate. This could be a brand new vaping experience for vapers. In addition, it may also indirectly affect outdoor (and indoor) vaping bans. At this time of writing, the Micrashell is still in a prototype stage and what you see on the website is far from the finished product.

What do you think about the Micrashell? Would you use it to vape in a new way? Would it enhance your vaping experience? We’d like to hear from you in the comments below!
