Phoenix / Ashtray


What do you feel when you see a cigarette butt on the ground? We usually think that a cigarette butt is useless litter. However, if we think about heat generated from it, a cigarette butt should be a wasted source of energy. We will be able to prevent a cigarette butt from throwing away and use the energy in warming our hands with Phoenix. In order to achieve this, apply thermoelectiric material on the centre of the inner surface of it in which users are likely put down a cigarett butt. And install nichrome wire for high conductivity when we turn on this device by using saved electiricity.
