New Cell Phone Has Built-in Breathalyzer

New York (UPI) — A cell phone with a built-in alcohol breath analyzer is headed to the United States from South Korea, where more than 200,000 of the devices have already been sold.South Korean manufacturer LG will introduce the LP4100 to the U.S. market later this year, ABC News reported.

Users blow into a small spot on the phone, and of nothing happens they are theoretically safe to drive. But if the user has had too much to drink, the $400 phone displays the image of a weaving car on the screen…

Hopefully more accurate then the ones used by law enforcement.
