We've had a lot of campfires over the years, near the house.    Our kids have been grown and gone for years.  One night, at a campfire when our Daughter was three or four years old, she went back in the house.  She came back out with swimming googles on to keep the smoke out of her eyes.  She said it worked.

Well I got to try it out... I'm very happy with the way it works.
It kept all the smoke away from the people.
It also protected the trees from the heat.

Yup show me. Throw on some green leafy stuff on a normal looking campfire, and put a little house fan off to the side to simulate a slight breeze and then turn on your video.  That roaring fire depicted ain't making any smoke

He didn't say he was trying to create a tornado, he said he was funneling smoke from a campfire.

It was a salt spreader and a stainless steel dye room roller.
Next time I fire it up I'll make some smoke and snap a picture.

I know what convection is. I also know science says you have to be within certain limits of certain conditions for specific results. I have no doubts that a roaring fire under that contraption is going to show what is wanted to be achieved. In order for me to change my opinion, it would have to be proven to me that given the conditions of a nice little bonfire that you would typically sit around with the family that generates smoke in the face due to air movement around the fire that this device would eliminate or drastically improve this, in its shown configuration, and I doubt it will.

I'm not a skeptic, I'm an observant realist.

I am with Jeff on this, not sure on dimensions here it looks out of poportion. That hood needs to be closer to the fire, then you cant see the guy on the other side your chin waggin to , if any one is as deaf as me you just smile and nod. :D

I am sure with a nor'easter the smoke would blow out to irritate the sitters.   ;D

It would be cool with easily adjustable legs so you could adjust the height to match different fire/wind conditions.  Nice idea.  As long as it does what you want, it's great!  :)

I'm happy with it. It does what I wanted it to do.
I was worried about the trees over the fire. So
far it has keep the heat from destroying them.
I think it keeps the smoke out of our faces.

As long as you are happy with results, it is a good invention.
Keep on thinking outside the box, thats where the interesting stuff lives.
