Breathalyzer Watch

Like playing the bagpipes and rolling your eyeballs into the back of your sockets, I would prefer that you not drink and drive, even if you're really good at it. Tokyoflash agrees, and so has proceeded with development and full production of their Design Studio Blog's conceptual breathalyzer watch, a longtime fan favorite surely soon to be seen on the wrists of many a 20-something reveler. The Kisai Intoxicated will still tell you the time, but with its built-in blood alcohol content sensor, it will also tell you when it's time to call a cab.

Still true to the company's trademark futuristic aesthetics, the Kisai Intoxicated's digital time readout is somewhat hidden in the shadows of the watch's colorful face. Look in between the pixels to gauge how far you are from last call. Once assured there are hours ahead, field test your skills with Intoxicated's sobriety game, a simple--but not easy for the inebriated--challenge of hitting a button to stop a line moving across the screen at dead center.

When it's time to head out, open the watch's side-mounted sensor cap, and press its alcohol button to begin the test. Once the sensor indicates it's ready to receive your hot, Jack-infused breath, just blow and go. Or, more likely, blow and don't go. A 5-second exhalation will report BAC at 10 different levels. A green display indicating 0.00 means you're the DD. Levels between between 0.41% and 0.60 produce a yellow display, and tell you you're buzzing. at 0.61% or above, you get a red display designating you are drunkety drunk. But hopefully still jolly and enthused, not sitting in the corner sobbing on a barstool like a girl and lamenting about how you accidentally took a sip of beer with gluten it. Either way, though, the wise old watch is telling you to call a cab on your way out, bro. Or call an Uber if you're lucky enough to live in a city that has them.

The Kisai Intoxicated is USB-chargeable and made of stainless steel.

Also of note from Tokyoflash's Kisai Intoxicated listing: "This watch is designed for entertainment only. The retailer does not warrant that the results obtained from this breathalyzer will be completely accurate or reliable and accepts no liability for consequences arising from its use." Wamp, wamp. For a BAC reader without caveats, check out this professional digital breathalyzer.
