Bar Bathroom Urinal Can Tell If You're Drunk, Notify Valet
This is the video of the Pee Analyzer, an unoriginally named bathroom urinal that tests your piss for alcohol content then informs you if you're over the limit or not. But the fun doesn't stop there! (It stops when the girl at the bar you were trying to talk to tells you have a booger on your face).
The Pee Analyser arrangement is pretty clever. Club-goers receive an RFID parking pass when they drop their cars off at valet. A device sitting in the urinal measures alcohol levels. An RFID reader near the urinal picks up each person's parking pass. If the urine clocks in above the legal limit, a sign at eye level suggests calling a cab to get home and the system takes note.
When the partied-out patron goes to retrieve his car, he has to hand his RFID parking card over to the valet. The valet scans it and an alert pops up if the customer tested high on his urine. Those customers are then asked to call a cab or take advantage of the club's drive-home service.
Granted if you wanted to beat the system you could not take your RFID parking pass to the bathroom with you, or just pee your pants. Of course if you're actually spending time thinking of ways to beat the drunk driving system, now might be a good time to address your alcoholism.
Hit the jump for a demo of the system in action.
