Fumo begins the audiovisual show when the ultrasonic sensor detects a cigarette butt has been deposited correctly
LED lights and internal speakers combine to create an audiovisual show for responsible smokers
The prototype Fumo is shaped like a cigarette, but the product could be customized to other shapes and sizes
Fumo is an interactive smoking pole which rewards smokers for disposing of their cigarette butts
Cigarette butts are a major source of litter, certainly rivaling chewing gum as a menace on public streets. This problem is being tackled in some countries by fines being issued to the culprits, but that only helps the situation if someone is caught in the act and then learns from their mistake – which isn't guaranteed. Dutch/Turkish design company Ioglo thinks it has a better solution in the form of Fumo, which uses an audiovisual show to reward smokers for their cigarette butts.
