Now comes DrinkMate, which is seeking crowdsourcing. Here’s a report on the device:
Washington D.C.-based Edge Tech Labs claim the “DrinkMate” is the smallest breathalyzer in the world. It measures just 1.8 inches long and weighs an almost non-existent 0.2 oz. Users connect the breathalyzer to a smartphone’s miniUSB charging port and blow into an “innovative air inlet” to get their Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) level displayed on screen almost instantly.
The DrinkMate claims to have an accuracy of +/- 0.01% BAC at a BAC of 0.02%. Additionally, the device can measure a maximum BAC level up to 0.20% BAC, which should be more than enough for anyone seriously considering a drive home after a night of heavy drinking.
