Love it ... gotta try it from my house in Singapore ...

you could use it like for a movie if you wanted to show a storm coming over a city by filming the sky when the smoke ascends.

Awesome. Though what is that you put the smokebomb in? Also, you might not want to re-use the pot you "cook" it in, and please wear plastic or latex gloves when handling.
