After experiencing a alcohol-induced blackout after three drinks, MIT Media Labs researcher Dhairya Dand has created a unique way of measuring his alcohol intake using new ice cubes he has created.
Electronics encased inside the glowing ice cubes keep a track of the alcohol you have consumed, changing their colour as the alcohol levels rise, and can even sending a text message to a person of your choice when levels reach a critical limit. Watch the video after the jump to see the ice cubes in action.
“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.”
