In case you've always been too drunk to remember, a breathalyzer is the reason you wake up in jail after a night of heavy partying and erratic driving/neighborhood mailbox reduction. Once only available to law enforcement officials, anyone can now measure their blood alcohol content, at which point they'll drunkenly declare themselves fine to drive despite what it says.
The latest version connects to your iPod and is made available by David Steele Enterprises for only $50. But wait, there's more! This little gadget can also serve as an FM transmitter for your car radio.
So what's the problem?
How anti-social do you have to be to bring your iPod to the bar or a party with you? And how long do you think it'll take before you and your buddies start to use the breathalyzer to judge drinking competitions?
Still, more interesting to us than this product's potential for misuse is its vendor. David Steele seems to actually think that he's the Q to Steve Jobs' James Bond. Most of his website is used to sell hidden cameras and spy phones, but he seems to have been getting into iPod accessories recently. For example, he sells iPod video glasses, which we could probably make fun of if we wanted to, but which actually sound pretty damn cool (at least until the head-splitting migraines set in).
