Tokyoflash’s Kisai Intoxicated comes with a breathalyzer and sobriety game
Tokyoflash Japan isn’t your average, everyday old watchmaker. These guys think on a whole new level when it comes to unique ways of telling time. They’ve been in the business a long time and while they’ve garnered a rather large fan club, their latest is sure to ‘drive’ your attention straight home. The Kisai Intoxicated watch is not only a unique time keeper it also lives up to its name in a very literal sense. This wrist wrangler comes fully loaded with a breathalyzer. If you’ve ever been worried about just how much you’ve drank and if you’re safe enough to drive, your watch will let you know. Of course not drinking and driving altogether is a better notion, but with the Kisai Intoxicated, at least you’ll know if you should attempt it.
On the side of this sleek looking wrist watch is clasp that needs to be popped open to reveal a sensor. Blow on to the sensor and the little section on the right hand of the watch interface will show you the level of your intoxication. It gives you a reading in blood alcohol content (BAC) and will also turn green, yellow or red depending on how drunk you are. Naturally this isn’t necessarily as accurate as the ones the police use but it should nevertheless give you a hint of just how dunk you could be. The large portion of the screen displays the time and date in an unorthodox-ish Tokyoflash digital style but is nevertheless easy to read, and according to the company, even if you’re not too sober.
The design was originally a concept on the Tokyoflash Design Studio Blog voted by the community as a design they’d like to see become reality. Charged via USB the Kisai Intoxicated has an adjustable stainless steel case and strap and features that include the date, alarm, up to 3 ATM water resistance and also a sobriety game. It’s priced at $99 which is a special release price only and be available at this rate up to June 21st at 4pm (Japan time). So grab it while you can social drinkers.
