Electronic Cigarette MiD One, PC Application and Web Server

Electronic Cigarette MiD One, PC Application and Web Server
  • Date: 2012 – 2013.
  • Company owner: Janty.
  • Customers: general public.
  • Creators: Raúl Bartolomé Castro and many others.
  • Raúl’s contribution: my contribution in this project is as inventor, engineering manager and chief engineering of complete system: electronic cigarette, PC application and web application. Additionally I was the senior design engineer for electronic schematic design and firmware development.
  • Market: consumer electronics.
  • Product category: electronic cigarette, software development.

Modular Intelligent Design. MiD is an electronic cigarette that gives the user total freedom in the creation of their individual vaping experiences.

With this device, we are introducing vaping profiles: A visual, editable representation of the dynamics in a puff. The way the MiD implements the vaping profiles is through an arbitrary waveform of voltage or power (Watts) on an editable timeline of 0-12 seconds. The MiD editable timeline allows you to fully control every 1/10 second of your puff.

The project involves the development of 3 different products or services:

  1. Complete electronic product development, including hardware, firmware and mechanical.
  2. PC application development for Windows.
  3. Web server development for social community and store of licenses of the device.

Product Presentation

Real Time Power Change

The MiD Joystick not only allows you to navigate the menus of the device, it also gives you the freedom to control real-time variable voltage or wattage of your vape.

Intelligent and Adaptive

Thanks to the customizable puff timeline of the MiD, you are no longer limited to one specific voltage whenever you vape. Create real-time pulsations, fades, boosts, loops and waves that give you a unique vaping experience. Now you can achieve that desired throat hit and richness of taste.
