Does anyone remember self lighting cigarettes? Think they tried them out in the sixties but they never caught on. Had like a bit of phosphorous on one side of the end and you struck it on the side of the packet. Bent more ciggies than I smoked when I gave it a go.

First ones were 1903, the Decca brand was around in the 60s.
