New Gadget Claims To Measure Blood Alcohol Content Through Your Skin

A new accessory, not yet available for purchase but apparently coming soon, claims it can measure your blood alcohol content (BAC) through your skin and can give you an immediate readout of your current level of inebriation. BACtrack Skyn is expected to be sold in both stand-alone and Apple watch accessory versions. The product bills itself as being able to give you a notification when your blood alcohol level reaches a certain pre-set point to remind you to slow down or stop drinking. No need to blow into a portable breathalyzer, which appears to be the company’s bread and butter based on their website’s list of currently available products. Hit the jump for a video of the CEO explaining the history of his company and what their new product is all about.
