'Tosee' is a gamified cigarette holder that helps users quit smoking by tracking their tar and nicotine intake. As many people know, quitting smoking can be a monumental task and this device helps to make the process easier by using data-driven technology.

The cigarette holder operates through the use of smart sensors that help to track the number of cigarettes you smoke, how much you inhale and your tar and nicotine intake. This information is then sent to the Tosee app via Bluetooth technology. The system helps motivate you to reduce, control or even quit your habit by rewarding you for doing less. The gamified system allows you to set targets and daily reminders in order to determine how smoking impacts your daily life.

Rather than simply reminding users that smoking is detrimental to their health, the Tosee device empowers smokers to track their behavior so that they can better understand their habit. By monitoring their smoking and setting personal goals, users may be able to give up the habit for good.
