Without a doubt this is the neatest idea i've heard in a while. I am amazed finding so many people here that have such cool ideas. Damn, I wish I was more creative.

If you have a friend who is a Magic the Gathering goober you could snag his marbles. They use them to keep track of points. LOL

Wanna give us a video of you heating up the coals? If not what kind of stove did you use? Coil or gas?

we used a portable single burner coil to heat the marbles up.

and it is hard to tell how long you whould heat them up for beacue i have no idea how big your marbles are what type they are it all just a guessing game.

we are just inventors of the most revolutional style of heating up a hookah, but are craft isnt perfect yet these are just one of many tests that we have to do to perfect our masterpiece.

do you have a general diameter of your stones. maby the ones we tried tonight were to small. hell even if they only last 30 min im willing to throw two sets on and rotate them just so i dont have to deal with coals less chance of burning the house down. i dont dought you at all just wanna try it for my self and have it work like you did. i was thinking if i cant find them or want larger ones just to have my mom puddle some glassup for me to try since she blows glass and does beads and stuff. you think this would work well.

ive asked her before she said she would try she said it wouldnt be a problem besides getting the neck size correct. My mom is getting up there in age and i dont know how much she is doing any more but her work is beatifull in my opinion and is pyradex and should be tough. But ive only seen her do smaller peaces lately like small flowers and hollow charms for necklesses and stuff. since she is almost 70 now i dont want to push her but i would love to see her turn out one of thoes modern styles ive seen with all the twisted colors.

naw naw the fact hes using them to heat a hookah is totally patentable.

you have no idea how simple of things are being patented still

very cool idea, between just the fact of it working if you can reproduce it easily and/or develop other things that would work (maybe a ceramic disk even)

hmm so many ideas now

If he tried to make money off it he would have to ensure it's totally safe first. Shattering/exploding marbles sitting at eye level doesn't sound too inviting to me...that said, it's a great idea and hopefully I have something I can give it a go with.

I'm gonna have to agree.At what point, after so much give and take, are these things gonna blow?Not to take away from the brilliance of this idea.It's truely amazing to be sure. But from a safety stand point, I just have to voice my concern.Maybe, as a parent, I'm a little too cautious.I hope so, because this method really seems promising!
