This Sly Little Gadget Can Stop You From Getting Too Drunk

(Picture: Proof)

We’ve all had one of those nights in the pub when you get up after a while and suddenly realise that you’re completely plastered.


How did this happen? You’ve been completely compus mentus up until now, with your award-winning banter and dexterous lighter skills. And yet here you are struggling to walk to the loo without falling arse over tit.


If only someone or something had warned you about how drunk you were getting before this moment. If only you had a gadget that would tell you that you were one drink away from circling the drain of sobriety.


Well, there’s now a wristband that exists to do just that.


Proof is a bit like a Fitbit, except it doesn’t measure your movements – it reads alcohol molecules through your skin instead.


Developed by California-based tech firm Milo Sensors, the gadget aims to convert alcohol into an electrical current via enzyme-based electrochemical sensors, which are then able to display your blood alcohol content on your phone.


And that’s useful in a variety of scenarios including working out whether you’re too drunk to drive after a couple of beers, whether you need a glass of water to sober up on a date, or generally to just compare how pissed you are compared to your mates.


It’s also got an invite-only friends feature which allows you to track your mates/partners who are out on the tiles to make sure they’re drinking responsibly (or not).


While undoubtedly this would be huge hit in student unions around the country, the CEO and founder Evan Strenk stressed that the app is supposed to encourage responsible drinking.


He told Mashable that its purpose was to ’empower people to make educated decision about alcohol’.


Apparently, the band’s rechargeable battery can last for up to four days, while automatically tracking alcohol content for over 12 hours at a time.


Last year the company secured $100,000 in funding from the U.S. National Institutes of Heath and this year, they’re launching a crowdfunding campaign to bring Proof to a wrist near you.


RIP blissful drunken ignorance.
