In honor of Mac's drive home last night and how I have been feeling all day today, here's an Alcohol Tester Wristwatch. The FiT188 Breathalyzer watch from Hong Kong based A&A Product Company, LTD. (which should hit the market later this month) can apparently detect alcohol levels from 0.2 to 1.5% BAC according to Wrist Dreams, which doesn't make a whole lot of sense because the legal limit here in North Cackalacka is 0.08%. Not to mention the fact that you would die before you reached a blood alcohol content of 1.5%! The lethal dose for 50% of adult human beings, or LD50, for alcohol is 0.40%. I think Wrist Dreams may have meant to write 0.02 to 0.15% BAC. That would make more sense. The watch also measures ambient temperature with a range from -19.9 to 70 degrees Celcius. It is expected to retail for under $100 and A&A Products is currently looking for international distributors. Hopefully it will get here before Mac kills again!
