We’ve seen some really cool accessories out there, and even had a chance to play with some of the best the market has to offer. But none of them have had the potential to save people’s life and to keep drivers safe on our roads. The Breathometer is a relatively small accessory which plugs in to your iPhone’s headset jack and pairs with a bespoke iOS app to transform your iPhone in to a breathalyzer.
It’s not all about reducing the risk of drink driving though, it poses a benefit for general health reasons too. As stated by the company’s CEO, Michael Yim.
“Breathometer wasn’t created just to address the risks associated with drinking and driving, but to help people, their friends and family, all to make smart and safer choices when consuming alcohol. Real time BAC measurement is the first step.”
As of now, the Breathometer is a work in progress and needs the public’s support to get it on the market. It’s currently sitting on popular crowd-funding site, Indiegogo with 32 days left for it to reach its goal of $25,000. You can pledge from $1 to $500, and as always different levels of cash get you different perks from getting a device up to becoming a lifetime member plus tickets for the launch event and T-Shirts.
