Electronic Ice Cubes Promote Safe Drinking

What if your ice cubes could help you have a safe night at the club?

To prevent himself from over-indulging, researcher Dhairya Dand created electronic ice cubes that monitor your alcohol consumption. Besides making your drink look cool, the device actually links to your smartphone and sends a text when you have reached an unsafe limit. 

Check it out: “After an alcohol induced blackout, I made self-aware glowing ice-cubes that beat to the ambient music. The electronics inside the ice-cubes know how fast and how much you are drinking. The cubes change color from green to orange to finally red as you keep drinking beyond the safety limit. If things get out of control, the cubes send a text to your close friend using your smartphone.” (Via HuffPost Tech)
