Glass capsules for smokers
Even a preschooler knows that smoking is dangerous and harmful to health, and yet over a billion people around the world choose to poison their bodies. And although smokers are poisoned voluntarily, cigarette smoke has a negative effect on the people around them. In Japan, they already have a solution – glass capsules.
The average smoker smokes around 15-20 cigarettes a day. Governments from all over the world are trying to discourage this not very healthy addiction by banning smoking in public places and designating special areas for this purpose. In addition, the media broadcast social campaigns informing about the possible consequences of smoking. However, this does not discourage 1.2 billion people. Japan has decided to fight for the health of those who are not attracted to tobacco.
One café has glass domes that are lowered over the smoking area. This solution is supposed to be beneficial for both sides – the harmful smoke does not remain in the dome, but is absorbed by it.
The idea proposed by the Japanese seems to be quite interesting, but we were not able to determine the stage of implementation of the project. There was also no information on how a smoking claustrophobic will react after leaving the capsule.
