Tracking Blood Alcohol Content With Ease
Drink responsibly. That’s what they always say.
Sadly, being responsible is often the last thing on a drunk person’s mind, hence the many alcohol-induced accidents worldwide, all year-round.
In an attempt to help ease alcohol-related road accidents, a company called Milo Sensors came up with a highly effective yet ingeniously subtle solution: the Milo Sensors Proof.
Price: Expected between $100 to $150
Although Breathalyzers have been around for a while, actually using one — especially in the case of young people — might be awfully embarrassing and just downright awkward.
Milo Sensors Proof, on the other hand, works in such a way that only its user knows exactly what it’s doing.
Paired with an app that translates every data gathered by the Milo Sensors Proof wristband from the user’s skin, the device allows users the subtlety of monitoring their blood alcohol level without drawing attention to themselves.
“There’s a breathalyzer out there, but no one uses it because they’re awkward,”
the company’s founder, Evan Strenk, told TechCrunch at the 2017 CES held last January.
“The use case there is you put our sensor on, at 6 p.m., you set your alarms for yourself, and everything’s paired with an app. [If I check my phone] you don’t even know if I’m messaging someone or checking my BAC. And because it’s continuous tracing, you can set alarms for yourself, like hitting .08 percent. I want to be alerted, maybe if I’m driving home, and you can connect with safety buddies, friends and family at undesirable levels.”
The device has the ability to continuously monitor a user’s blood alcohol level, which makes the Milo Sensors Proof a lot more efficient than conventional breathalyzers as it alerts users in real time on whether or not their alcohol intake is already within the threshold limit.
Even despite the fact that the device may seem unnecessary, the Milo Sensors Proof can be a life-saving gadget for individuals bent on maintaining social lives.
This alcohol-detecting wristband is expected to be officially out in the market sometime later this year and is expected to sell from $100 to $150.
