Magic smoke is what makes electronic devices work. Here, I'll prove it to you: Have you ever fiddled around with a TV or computer or anything similar until bang, sparks came out? You probably noticed at that time a small whiff of smoke. That was the magic smoke. The device didn't work after that, right? That's because you let the magic smoke come out.
