Xinghuozhe, a traditional Chinese equivalent of Zippo, sells like hot cakes on China's e-commerce and social media platforms. Young designers from the Gao Lamei Nianhua Studio have re-designed the traditional gadget, adding a USB interface, a rechargeable battery, and replacing the bamboo-made, cylinder-shaped case with one made of red sandalwood with carved images of the fortune gods, commonly seen in Tantou nianhua works from Central China's Hunan province.
