By this time, everyone in the world should be aware of the dangers associated with getting behind the wheel of a car while drunk. Less publicized are the very similar dangers that can befall those who try to ride a bicycle while drunk – dangers that Koowho’s Alcoho-Lock is designed to prevent.
The Alcoho-Lock is an outwardly standard bike lock, but in order to unlock it you have to prove you’re not drunk. To do that, you breathe into the built-in breathalyzer – if an illegal amount of alcohol is detected, the lock won’t budge. But it doesn’t stop there, leaving you drunk, stranded, and bikeless – the companion app gets in touch with a friend or loved one who will presumably then arrange a ride.
Precise pricing details on the Alcoho-Lock are still to come, but it’s expected to be priced at least $240 once it becomes available. You can watch for more information at the official product site here, and check out a promotional video below.
