Mouth Spray Makes You Instantly Drunk

StarckThe bizarre part about this story, for me anyway, is that the spray was designed by Phillippe Starck, the French designer of expensive boutique hotels, furniture and all sorts of other bits and bobs. From the Daily Mail:

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.

Two American scientists designed the device – a small spray that gives you that instant drunk sensation from less than a drop of alcohol.

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…

    They’re probably going to ban these once some frat boy drops dead after emptying ten of these at once.

      Do you realize that 10 of these is only equivalent to 0.75 shots of liqour (40 proof). thats LESS THAN ONE SHOT. Im thinking about someone taking 100 and seeing what happens….. Of course it’ll be $50 a whip anyways though. ($50×100 = $5,000)

  • saint_al

    A really hardcore and desperate alkie would just break into the spray bottle, drink the contents- which looks like about a little less than a shot. This booze delivery system’s wear-off-in-a-minute effect is reminiscent of nitrous oxide Whippets.

    I never thought you could make Everclear obsolete.

    Whip-its for booze

    • Mrtchops

      personally, i’d just stick with the original whip-its.. much more fun.
      then again, the last time i abused nitrous oxide i spent half an hour seeing blue out of one eye and red out of the other. great days…

        Did you watch 3D movies without the glasses?

    What purpose would this serve? I could see it for anaethesia applications, but that wasn’t the intent, was it? This isn’t good.

       It gets you drunk for a second that’s what it’s for like synthetic pot.

  • Eric_D_Read

    What kind of idiot would buy this stuff? 
    If you need to get drunk so bad that you can’t wait to pound a fifth of whiskey, just mainline it or use a vodka suppository like a normal person.

    You could expand on this idea by using different drugs. Things like vaccines or antibiotics could use this tech. 

  • TheTypicalPickle

    it may “wear off” instantly but what are the effects to your liver? Alcohol stays in your blood for a while, is this suggesting that in can entirely leave as fast as you consumed it?
