Tech vs Alcohol: New Cool Gadgets That Won’t Let You Drive After Glass or Two

Technological innovations make our lives more convenient but what about safety? One of the greatest threats on our roadways remains — drunk driving.

Nexter.org gathered three that will help you to control your alcohol level. 

Smart temporary tattoo

A new monitoring device developed by engineers at the University of California, San Diego, could help people discreetly measure their alcohol intake by transmitting alcohol levels to a connected cell phone.

The tech is a small wearable, comparable to a temporary tattoo, that sits directly on the skin.

According to Science Daily, it works by stimulating perspiration, which the device can then use to measure the level of alcohol in the person’s system.

Wearable alco-tracker

Evan Strenk started Milo Sensors, a company built around wearable sensors that detects various chemicals in your body based on perspiration from your skin.

The company is starting off with Proof, a small band that can gauge your blood alcohol content and send the information to an app where you can subtly see where you are in the night and whether you should order that next beer.

Sober Driving 

If you’re drunk, your car may soon be able to stop you from driving. A new generation of technology prevents cars from operating if the driver is drunk.

Researchers are developing with two cutting-edge approaches:

•Breath: A system measures blood alcohol levels from a driver’s breath. The levels would be detected from sensors mounted in front of the driver. But the driver wouldn’t even need to be aware they are being monitored.

•Touch: This method would screen for alcohol when the driver touches the start button, or another designated surface in the car. Alcohol levels would be measured under the skin’s surface on a touch-pad with an infrared light scanner.
