Smoke machines are a great way to add a cinematic atmosphere to your set. On the other hand, smoke machines are typically big and cumbersome and require on-set handling. And this is precisely the issue that the Smoke NINJA (on Kickstarter soon) from PMI is trying to solve.
If you’ve been around, you are probably familiar with the Smoke Genie (also from PMI). This is a phone-sized portable smoke machine packed with features, and it costs accordingly – $595. Now, PMI is creating an entry-level model with a similar set of features, with a price to match.
