What will they come up with next? A couple of American scientists designed Wahh Quantum Sensations, a spray that gets you drunk fast.
A new gadget is designed to get people drunk INSTANTLY. The makers claim, however, that the ‘harm’ is limited, because you sober up equally rapidly. The alcohol is delivered via an aerosol spray, so people feel briefly drunk, then sober up. But however quickly people might recover, drunkenness can lead to accidents – and it’s also unclear how the device could be misused by alcoholics.
The feeling lasts just seconds – but when it fades, you are sober and able to carry on with your day. The ‘Wahh Quantum Sensations’ delivers just a miniscule dose of alcohol – 0.075ml – directly in to your mouth, but thanks to the aerosol effect, the effect is instantaneous. With a typical drink containing 40 to 60ml of alcohol, the scientists say it would take a thousand sprays to get the equivalent amount of alcohol into your system.
French designer Philippe Starck and Franco-American scientist David Edwards say the advantages is to enjoy the drunk sensation with none of the harmful effects of alcohol on the body.
The product is about to go on sale in Europe for 20 Euros, with each capsule offering 21 ‘shots’. UK distribution plans have not been unveiled yet. Unveiling the spray in Paris yesterday, Starck said:
‘The question is how to do good without doing harm. Wahh is an alternative that offers the idea of intoxication without its adverse effects.’
Before Wahh, Edwards, a professor at Harvard University, developed the ‘Whif’. Launched in 2008, it was another small aerosol the size of cigar, which offered the flavors of chocolate, coffee and tea. The product which sold for between £1.50 and £3, was a moderate success, selling 400,000 copies worldwide.
Uhmm..where can we get this?? lol
