Oh Yes, Apple Just Filed a Patent for a Sick Vape

The patent in question actually refers to a vaporizer device used in the fabrication of semiconductors.

Within the patent, it is mentioned that Apple Inc.

Apple is renowned for giving surprises to its audience by bringing new innovative products on stage.

Apple is apparently tapping into the vaping audience as per a new patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office this week, detailing the company's potential technology for vaporizing.

'A plate whose bottom face rests on the substance inside the chamber body is temperature regulated, e.g., using a heater therein, which releases heat directly above the substance that lies below'. (It could, for example, be used in certain industrial and medical settings.) At the moment, however, the most common vaporizers in Apple's wheelhouse-the consumer electronic market-are recreational vapes, and the substance often used in a recreational vape is weed.

As further proof, the patent's inventor is named as Tetsuya Ishikawa, a senior Apple manager and nanotechnology specialist.

Though Apple has never spoken of such plans before, it is quite interesting to assume what could be the result of the patent.

Some new technology has also made it possible for users to create holograms using vapor technology.

Using a vaporizer - that is, the act of vaping - has officially been deemed uncool by society, but will that stigma remain if Apple gets into the game?

Apple may be dabbling in cars, wearables, and other technologies outside its core smartphone and computers business, but here is an area few people would expect the Cupertino, California company to enter.

Whether Apple will look to push the plans beyond the exploration stages remains to be seen, but the popularity of vaping continues to grow as an alternative to tobacco.
