Fusing functional with unique and inventive, “The Autopilot” inline vapor rig comes out onto the glass scene swinging. Creator Jesse Haskins sought to develop an all in one dab rig, and has done just that- The autopilot is a sleek, hand-held clear borosilicate glass piece with a recycler design, complete with an inline percolator for maximum airflow and smooth inhalation. “Scro” is scrawled on the side- Scro is the glass company and it is partially a reference to the 2006 film, Idiocracy in which “Scro” replaces “bro.” Scro and other designs are available when purchasing online at www.scroglass.com or www.aqualabtechnologies.com
Engineered to fit directly onto the metal tip of a Blazer Big-Shot as presented, or a Stok brand blow torch, the Autopilot needs only a small piece of silicone “dabmat” between steel and glass for thermal protection and slip resistance. With a torch supporting the glass, the blue flame directly touches the 10mm dome-less Ceramic nail which was provided by Hive Ceramics. The autopilot can be held with one hand while heating, leaving another free to hold a dab tool, ready with the desired amount of concentrate.
This is a useful piece for the traveling dabber, easily cleaned up and stowed away in nearly anything, torch and all. The torch remains connected when not in use, serving as a base, which the autopilot does not have. When not in use it is recommended that the torch be turned sideways and laid down, leaving the autopilot pitched. Overall this is a great design, and should be in every glass amasser’s functional art collection, but don’t let it sit around, the novelty lays in the use.
