US: Two MSU Students Develop Device to Help People Quit Vaping


Michigan State students Brendan Wang and Jake Roach, launch CAPNOS Zero, a nicotine-free device that is meant to be used as a substitute for e-cigarettes. 

CAPNOS co-founder and CEO Brendan Wang said that he struggled with a vape addiction for five years, starting from his freshman year at high school.

“It’s just something that I just did and didn’t really think too much about,” he said. “I didn’t really have any intentions of stopping, but then when I became more conscious about it, I was like, ‘Am I able to stop?’”

Eventually Wang decided to understand his habit cycles and by reading about behavioral psychology, he came up with the idea for the CAPNOS Zero, a smokeless and nicotine-free pressurized air inhaler. The device is designed to function as a behavioral aid, by inhaling flavoured air.

In line with study findings, on surveying thousands of vapers, Wang found that most e-cigarettes users (as do smokers) suffer from a behavioral addiction, or the act of vaping, rather than an actual addiction to nicotine.
