Presenting perhaps the smallest and lightest alcohol breath detector in the world

Despite the availability of breathalyzer devices on the market, few people actually own them. They’re often cumbersome, require frequent calibration and have mouthpieces not conducive to sharing. But would increased adoption help more people avoid risky decisions? That’s what Edge Tech Labs is trying to accomplish with their current Kickstarter campaign for DrinkMate.

DrinkMate is claimed to be the world’s smallest and lightest breathalyzer, measuring in at 1.8″ long, 0.62″ in diameter and a scant 0.2 oz (small enough to carry on a keychain). It doesn’t require a battery because it’s powered via Micro USB port and power consumption is negligible for short periods of time on phones. As of right now, DrinkMate is only compatible with Android OS devices.
