Vapor Corp. Unveils E-Cigarette Industry's First Biometric Technology
E-Cigarette Pioneer Showcases Fingerprint Identification Technology to Enhance Parental Controls and Theft Prevention
LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- from ShowStoppers @ CES 2014 – Vapor Corp. (OTCQB: VPCOD) today announced its Vapor X personalized, rechargeable vaporizer unit will become available to consumers with patent pending fingerprint lock technology in time for the 2014 holiday retail season. There will be a working prototype and early iteration of the product to try today during ShowStoppers at CES 2014, Booth # A5.
In 2013 every corner of the country weighed in on the newest options in alternative smoking devices, making it clear that traditional smoking is on its way to being replaced by "vaping." Now Vapor Corp., a leading publically traded "pure-play" company in the electronic cigarette market, is answering the question on everyone's mind: what comes next?
"The next trend in alternative smoking devices is the personalized vaporizer that incorporates the technology that we expect from our high-end tech devices. Today we are debuting the newest technology in this space," says Kevin Frija, CEO of Vapor Corp. "By incorporating this biometric user identity technology into the Vapor X personal vaporizer, the door is opened to many customizable features. The fingerprint lock security allows customers to protect their device from use by another individual and this same technology will lead to the development of additional features and controls," continues Frija. "Much like the fitness mobile app technology we have seen gain recent popularity, vaporizer users will soon be able to download their 'vaping' statistics through a corresponding mobile application in order to track exactly how often they use the device."
Vaporizers are the rechargeable, customizable, high-end cousin of the disposable electronic cigarette. The Vapor X with patent pending fingerprint lock technology will incorporate biometric technologies in order to keep the device locked and turned off unless the authorized user is present. When first purchased, the device will require an authorized user to be assigned through a fingerprint scan. Once this user is assigned, he or she is the only person who can activate the device. This will not only protect against minors being able to turn on the device, but it will deem the device useless in the case of theft.
Vapor Corp.'s Vapor X personalized, rechargeable vaporizer unit will become available with patent pending fingerprint lock technology in the second half of 2014 to consumers via online and through authorized dealers nationwide. The device will retail for between $199 and $299.
