This wristband will tell you when to stop drinking


The prototype Skyn from BACtrack won the National Institutes of Health’s “Wearable Alcohol Biosensor Challenge” in May. The U.S. government sponsored the contest to create a small and accurate way of measuring how alcohol is affecting a drinker in as close to real-time as possible.

The Skyn detects ethanol molecules escaping through the skin and sends constant reports — as many as one per second — to your phone using a Bluetooth connection.


Rather than having to take breath tests, the Skyn gives users almost real-time measurements of their Blood Alcohol Content (BAC). It causes the phone to vibrate as users near 0.04% BAC — about half the legal limit to operate a vehicle in most states – warning them to slow down on their drinking.

BACtrack hasn’t announced a final price on their new device, but the company plans to have limited quantities of the Skyn available by the end of 2016.
