I am researching the history of this effect. If you know of any versiones including marketed please mention them.
I am aware of Vito Lupo's version, and that is about it.
Any help will be greatly appreciate it. :D

Fred Kaps used this effect in some of his magic shows. I know Magic Hands, Germany sold this effect many years ago. Great effect.

The Kaps method was actually the creation of Dick Koornwinder.

Viking/CW also puts out a version of it.

With all the bans on cigarette smoke first-hand and second-hand, which I heartily support, we'll need to come up with new rationales for performing this effect. As much as I support the ban on smoking in public places, I hate to lose great effects like this, especially since the smoke can be confined to a glass or bottle where it is of no danger to anyone.
