Sonic Lighter is a new app from Smule that let’s you flick your Bic, so to speak. It gives yoyr iPhone a simulated flame that you can control by touch or tilt. Start the display and light your fire. If you like, breathe on the device to control or extinguish the flicker. Just be careful others are not laughing at you nearby. I know what you’re thinking. All this for 99 cents? Freakin amazing right?
But it is capable of so much more. Like, if you find yourself without a lighter during a concert for instance. And because it contains a sonic modem that lets you ignite nearby Smule-enabled phones, you could “spread your light” and maybe really liven up said concert. Smule even has a nifty World Wide Ignition Map that traces recently lit flames around the globe. Cheesy? You bet ya. Now if it detected farts jettisoned out of your Levi’s and ignited nearby flames accordingly, I’d be impressed. It doesn’t take much really. Just innovate a little. C’mon people.
