Techie Whispers: iPhone Case That’s Also a Charger and Breathalyzer

iphone case

A Japanese firm, Thanko, created an iPhone case parlays into a breathalyzer and a charger.

Its user can breathe into the test hole for three to five seconds and their blood alcohol readings are displayed within 20 seconds.

If the screen glows red, it means it is not safe to drive, while a green screen means driving will be within the legal limit.

When the screen glows yellow, users are borderline over the limit and should stop drinking and wait a while before checking the reading again, and getting in the car.

The Alcohol Checker case also charges a phone using a built-in 1,800 mAh battery.

The case works in the same way as a docking station and users can switch between using the phone’s battery, to using the power in the case.

The breathalyser is powered completely by the case, too, meaning it doesn’t use up the handset’s battery life.

Thanko is working on versions for other phones.  It should not be used to determine a safe driving limit as a standalone device.
