Ever find yourself in a situation where you’re enjoying a night out, but it’s time to go home and you’re not sure if you should drive? First of all, we all have, and the answer to that question—if you have to ask it at all—is definitely no. But maybe you want to just see if you’d be legally allowed to operate a moving vehicle. Or perhaps you’re so into science and alcohol that you’re dying to know how a spirited drink impacts your body.
Whatever your motive, the folks from BACtrack, manufacturers of personal and professional breathalyzers, have a new product that every human being can benefit from owning. Earlier this month, the company unveiled the BACtrack Skyn, a wearable device that “reinvents alcohol monitoring” by measuring the amount of alcohol eliminated through the skin, which can provide BAC levels in both continuous and near real-time.
“We’re excited to introduce a breakthrough innovation in alcohol monitoring, making it simple for people to track their alcohol level—passively, accurately and near real-time,” Keith Nothacker, President and CEO of BACtrack, said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to finally share these devices, which have been in development for more than two years.”
