The Future is NOW

Sunday, July 1, 2012 3:18:30 PM America/Los_Angeles

“Welcome to the Future” is a phrase that has been kicking around the office a bunch over the recent months. I’m not quite sure what we mean when it’s said, but mostly I hear it when one of the Vapor Experts is blown away by the advanced technologies we deal with every day.

In an office with Quad-Core computers featuring million-pixel resolutions, automatic vacuum robots that sweep around the office finding their own way, and cloud computing software that shares files almost instantly across hundreds of miles, it’s hard to keep your cool. These modern devices have literally changed the way we interact with the world around us, and sometimes it feels a bit ‘futuristic’ while its underway.

Perhaps it’s the advent of true science fiction in the mid 1600s that has made our world seem so advanced. Since Johannes Kepler’s “Somnium” first jettisoned an imaginary tale of space flight into the minds of his contemporaries, creative minds have set to work ‘predicting’ the way that the future might look. In the early 1900s, the creativity took leaps and bounds as quantum mechanics and deep space imagery first took to the mainstream. Comics, radio shows, and later television served to enhance our ability to believe in a changing tomorrow even further.

Grant Achatz on NPR’s Fresh Air

Thursday, March 29, 2012 9:48:53 AM America/Los_Angeles

Grantz Achatz was raised in a kitchen. In the Fresh Air interview, he told listeners about his start cooking in the kitchen at the family diner, and related memories of a single pan he began his life’s work on. Now in his own kitchen, Chef Achatz often serves disruptive dishes that break the eating audience out of the typically monotonous ritual. Included in the many hour tasting experience at Alinea are:

  • seasoned olive oil lollipops
  • smoldering cinnamon sticks engulfed in sweet potatoes
  • bacon strips drying like sheets on a wire
  • flaming oak leaf with tempura-fried pheasant and apple cider
  • apple-wood infused ice cream
  • and the list goes on…

Our First Glance at the Vapors Rising from Grant Achatz’s New Bar, “Aviary”

Thursday, March 29, 2012 9:44:16 AM America/Los_Angeles

At first glance, famed restaurateur Grant Achatz’s new mixology bar, Aviary, looks more like a scene out of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.” In reality, it is a cutting-edge cocktail bar that features creative new twists to take you out of your cocktail comfort zone. Vapors rise from the kitchen where a team of 40 “chefs” –akin to mad scientists tooling with funneled glassware and liquids–are concocting all sorts of variations on classic cocktails ranging from the deconstructed Moscow Mule to the seven-layered Hurricane.

El Bulli's Last Waltz

Thursday, March 29, 2012 9:37:02 AM America/Los_Angeles

El Bulli – The name invokes culinary excellence, patron exclusivity, and innovation abound. It has also become one of our favorite topics for discussion, as Head Chef Ferran Adria famously kept as many as six Volcano Vaporizers in his kitchen in Spain. In many ways, Adria’s exploration into the physical basis of flavor, texture, and color has led vaporization to a new horizon.

Chef Adria and his peers have taken this penchant for breakthrough to a global scale, and many renowned chefs, including Grant Achatz, Rene Redzepi and Joan Roca, have re-iterated his ability to transform food into fine art.

Unfortunately for foodies, El Bulli served its last meal on Saturday, July 30th, 2011. Fittingly dubbed “The Final Waltz,” this 50 course meal invited friends, family and chefs alike from across the globe to enjoy the last menu that El Bulli will offer in the foreseeable future.

Two Easy Tricks on How to Use A Vaporizer Efficiently

Wednesday, March 21, 2012 10:27:39 AM America/Los_Angeles

Two Simple Tricks to Having the Best Vaporizer Experience

Our most frequently asked question as Vapor Experts is “How do I optimize my vaporizer?”

If you're having trouble  and want to know how to use a vaporizer you’ve come to the right place. 
Time and time again these same two tricks work for just about every vaporizer, and can help you achieve the highest efficiency, the most flavor, and the least hassle. Get the best vapor for your buck by following these two simple ideas for the best way to optimize your portable vaporizer or at home desktop vaporizer.

For our case study, we used two of the most popular vaporizers we sell (The Arizer Extreme-Q, and the Iolite Original) and then tried the test again with two of our newest releases. (The Vaporfection ViVape, and the Volcano PLENTY) The results are the same across the board! It seems that regardless of the model or the ‘generation’ of vaporizers, these same two tricks help optimize the quantity and quality of vapor produced.

Vaporfection ViVape

Wednesday, March 7, 2012 10:37:33 AM America/Los_Angeles

viVape complete kit
The Vivape is available in Black and White, both are compatible with Whip or Balloon

The Vaporfection ViVape is a desktop vaporizer that features the first ever color touch screen interface for user temperature control and display on a vape. This next-level development sounds great, who wouldn’t want a color touchscreen to choose their favorite temperature on? The viVape has other great features as well, like the ‘metal grade glass heating chamber’ that heats materials evenly for maximum efficiency. The viVape does not have the same heat sensitive touchscreen technology that Apple products do. Instead, the viVape touch screen is pressure sensitive, and as such, Vaporfection recommends the users finger nail as the best way to interact with the device. The viVape is aiming to compete with the Arizer Extreme-Q and the Aire H2.1 as the third ‘hybrid’ vaporizer that functions with both a whip and a balloon setup.

Vaporfection miVape

The unreleased Vaporfection miVape
The MiVape looks awesome, but has yet to hit the shelves.

The miVape is the first portable vaporizer to come from Vaporfection, a manufacturing firm that has been producing vapes since the early 2000’s. The miVape was originally slated for a release in the Fall of 2011, but has since been pushed back for release on December 28th, 2011, effectively making this a vaporizer for 2012.
