In another trip back to the future, the iPhone can now communicate by sending up free smoke signals rather than sending text, audio or photos, thanks to a German hacker. His invention is called S.M.S. for Smoke Messaging Service and brings the ancient art of smoke signals to modern iPhones. At the push of a button, a little oil lamp that's attached to an iPhone sends a puff of smoke in the air in front of the iPhone's camera. Check out the above video.
