Those are air bubbles in water, smoke wouldn't be that orderly; although smoke cut by laser beams might be a spectacle.

Minix aerodynamics breakthrough increases fuel efficiency by 6%
Minix aerodynamics breakthrough increases fuel efficiency by 6%

Quote:
The Minix wing tip can be retrofitted to any aircraft wing. Apart from reducing the drag, the Minix system produces increased lift at the wing tip, which is especially useful during landing. Most importantly, according to Hughes the Minix wing tip is cheaper than a traditional winglet and on a recent prototype testing it showed a 6% gain in drag efficiency at Mach 0.8 which is the typical speed of an airliner.
