For the caffeine-sensitive folks who can’t consume too many coffees or energy drinks, there’s an alternative product that aims to give users a boost of energy without having to drink or eat anything.
Sprayable Energy is exactly what its name suggests. It’s an odorless and colorless product that people can spray on their skin to get the same boost of energy they would normally get from caffeinated liquids.
Developed by Thiel fellow Ben Yu and venture capital investor Deven Soni, Sprayable Energy is a mix of caffeine, water, and a derivative of tyrosine, a naturally-produced amino acid.
A single bottle can last for two to three weeks or about 40 applications/160 sprays. The product is set to retail at $15 per unit, promising users a more portable and cheaper way of getting their energy fix.
The product is being marketed to those are sensitive to the jitters and those who want to avoid the sugar and calories that come in energy drinks.
The creators have already launched their Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for the production of the initial batch of Sprayable Energy. The team has already reached their target goal of $15,000 with over a month to go.
