Japanese company Tokyoflash clearly has your well-being at heart. Its new Kisai Intoxicated watch features a built-in breathalyser that enables you to test your blood-alcohol content before getting behind the wheel of your car.
To test your blood alcohol content, you simply open the sensor cap and press a button to start the test. Once the sensor has warmed up, you blow for 5 seconds, then wait for the watch to come up with the goods. The display on the right shows 10 different levels of blood-alcohol content. A green display means you’re sober, a yellow display (between 0,41 and 0,6 per cent) means you’re buzzing, and a red display (0,61 per cent or higher) means only one thing: you’re drunk, and decidedly unfit to drive.
Here’s the clincher: the watch comes with a built-in sobriety game. Once activated, a line on the screen moves from left to right. Hit the button and stop the line dead centre to win; stop it on either side, and you’re less than sober. Oh, and you can also use the watch to tell the time.
