Tokyoflash Concept w/ Built-In Breathalyzer

June 16, 2011


This is a conceptual Tokyoflash watch with a built-in breathalyzer for determining your sobriety. You know, I actually used to own a breathalyzer that I'd leave out whenever we threw a party so people could see how drunk they were. One time a friend got so wasted he blew a 0.39 my roommate! Didn't you -- didn't you, Chris?! "It was an HJ." HAHA!

This concept is an LCD watch design which can be read at a glance because it has an 'always on' digital LCD display. It also features a multi-colored LED backlight, perfect for night time viewing. You simply have to touch the light function to illuminate the display.

After drinking, touch the button to activate the Alcohol Test Function, blow into the port and await the result. Your blood alcohol content reading gives an indication of your level of sobriety.

You know what the funny part is? All Tokyoflash designs have a built-in mechanism for measuring your sobriety: it's called reading the time. "Hey GW -- what time is it?" *trying to drink from ashtray* Huh? Oh -- LIKE SIX DOTS AND TWO SQUIGGLES. "I'll call a cab."

Hit the jump for a couple more pictures and a couple videos in case you're really struggling to understand the concept here.

    Self-breathalysing isn't really a good idea: It encourages people to drink up to the limit as close as they can, and it's stilll impossible to estimate what your alcohol is GOING TO BE later, once the booze has got into your system. A better and simpler alternative is: if you're going to drive, or do anything else that would be affected by alcohol, just don't bloody drink!
    The only really safe option is the ZERO option.
