Anti-alcohol starter button

Takata and TruTouch have joined forces to develop an automotive starter button that can automatically measure the level of alcohol in the blood of the driver. They received a grant of $2.25 million from the Automotive Coalition for Traffic Safety to make this technology commercially viable. Their task is to develop a button, using infrared technology, which has the capacity to measure blood alcohol levels in less than a second, at temperatures as low as -40 degrees, with a price tag under two hundred dollars. Though it won't be available soon, this technology may end up replacing the familiar breathalyzer.RelatedWorld's worst commutesMost expensive car accident ever?Weirdest cars money can buy
