Slighter is a smart lighter that helps you control your smoking habit one cigarette at a time.

A common New Year's resolution is to quit smoking. Unfortunately for most smokers, will power is often not enough on its own. Luckily, there are any number of products ranging from gum and hypnotism to patches and e-cigarettes that try to assist.

At CES, a company from Lebanon named Slighter, showcased a new cigarette lighter that offers you a new way to quit. It learns when and how frequently you light up, then personalizes a plan for you. Over time, the Slighter purposely won't light to help you reduce the cigarettes you smoke one-by-one until you gradually reach your goal.

They'll come loaded with a new feature called "Remote Access," which will allow them to, well, remotely access your other devices through a wireless connection. For desktops, it's through an IP network, while for laptops and mobile, it's through your WiFi. You'll simply have to connect a mouse and a keyboard to the smart TV to be able to access a PC in your bedroom while you're in the living room, for instance.

The Slighter's hardware is striking. It has a metal band that giving the lighter an attractive outline of its sleek handgrip shape. On one side, is a tiny display that shows the number of times you light up and other data to help you quit.

Slighter was nominated for a clinical run with the French National Cancer Institute, Hygée Center of Cancer Prevention, and the Institute of Cancer in Lyon, France.

You can pre-order Slighter now for $129 which converts roughly £100, AU$180. It is expected to ship by July 2019.
