New device helps avoid second hand smoke

TOKYO (NBC)-- A Japanese company has unveiled a cigarette-like device that doesn't burn tobacco or release smoke.

A cylinder, filled with a tobacco leaf, is fitted with a mouthpiece so that smokers can inhale and experience the full effect of smoking, but without the need to exhale smoke.

Since the product doesn't pollute the air, it helps people nearby avoid the effects of second hand smoke.

A company official said the point of the product is to eliminate smokers' concerns that they are disturbing people around them.
