TOSTITOS MADE A CHIP BAG THAT CHECKS YOUR BREATH FOR BOOZE
Just in time for the Super Bowl, some big brains at Tostitos have developed a chip bag that knows if you’ve been drinking.
The limited-edition Tostitos Party Bag features sensors that detect alcohol on a person’s breath.
If you haven’t been drinking, the bag turns green and you’re free to go about your night. If alcohol is detected, the bag turns red with the message, “Don’t drink and drive” – and then offers a $10 Uber credit for a discounted ride home.
The bag even has technology that lets you tap your phone to the bag to call for the ride.
To be clear, here, this bag is not a breathalyzer. It does not tell you what your estimated blood alcohol content levels are or know how much you’ve had to drink. It only detects whether there’s any trace of alcohol at all – which is still pretty amazing.
