Vaping has come a long way since bulky early devices. Now a highly innovative industry fusing technology and art, vaping entered the mainstream market in the late 2000s as compact, powerful devices emerged. Beyond the endless variety in pens, mods, tanks and e-juice, vaping has sparked an artistic subculture with competitions, custom mods and coil builds. Vaping continues rapidly evolving through new innovations while regulations seek balance. This young industry creatively integrates tech and art, paving an intriguing path forward.
