Today we’ve got one of those inventions that is becoming less and less faux pas. Introducing the Grasshopper Vaporizer, now available on IndieGogo. Using stainless steel construction and some pretty mind-blowing engineering (considering what these guys probably keep in their vaporizers), the pen-shaped instrument heats herbs evenly so users get a clean smoke without inhaling as many carcinogens as one might under ordinary vaporizer use.
With more people supporting the legalization of marijuana, the rise in popularity of eCigarettes, and the product’s discrete portability, the time has clearly arrived for the Grasshopper to have its day. Simply unscrew the end, insert your herbs, replace the cap, turn it on, and wait for the LED indicator to tell you when the time is right.
As far as charging goes, the vaporizer pen uses a magnetic USB loop that simply clamps on the end and gives the device juice for a nice, even smoking session.
On circuitry, the Grasshopper boasts a pair of microprocessors to monitor user input and precisely control temperature. These microprocessors communicate through the metal housing of Grasshopper, relaying information from one end to the other. This allows the pen to be built without the use of any wires. It also saves space, increases reliability, and reduces the cost of manufacturing.
