Temporary Tattoo Knows When You've Had Too Much To Drink

August 3, 2016

Knowing when you've had too much to drink is easy for some and hard for others, a situation that heads to poor choices in getting behind the wheel. Researchers at the University of California, San Diego, say they've created a temporary tattoo that can tell when you are too drunk to drive.  A temporary tattoo with sensors are able to detect alcohol levels through their sweat with very accurate results. In the future these devices could allow bar goers to monitor their alcohol levels throughout a night, to speed up DUI checkpoints and help bartenders to figure out for sure when someone is past their limit. Currently the tattoos are designed for one time use to keep costs low. Research is still ongoing, but this could very easily be the future of not getting too drunk at the bar or, worse, too drunk to drive.
