Ever had one of those Friday nights where you ended up drinking alone and wondered what your Blood Alcohol Content was? Or maybe you and your friends were having a contest to see how many Zima’s you could put away during your all night Magic fest with your local guild members. Either way, nothing shows off your super geekness more than a fancy new Tokyoflash watch especially when it’s sporting a built-in breathalyzer. This concept is bringing the best of two worlds together, the ability to tell time in classic geek style and now the ability to tell you blood alcohol content too.
The concept features an “always on” LCD display with multiple backlight colors to choose from and from what it looks like the standard smoked glass and stainless steel construction. This is one of the few if not first I’ve seen to sport touchscreen operation.Basically you blow into the port on the side of the watch and see the results on your screen. I can probably think of a few times where this would have come in handy for entertainment purposes, but obviously should never be used a gauge to see if you are sober enough to get behind the wheel.
So will this watch ever leave the concept stage? Hard to say but so far from the rendering it looks promising. Aside from the fact that you would have the coolest sobriety checking watch ever, the actual watch itself looks fantastic. I really like the shape of the watch face and the design of the screen. Having a touchscreen watch is pretty much the only way to go these days and the thick extruded steel looks like a really cool design. I’m hoping this watch makes it to market and eventually hope to get one around my wrist. The old school pixelated display and large face could make it a daily driver for me and also keeps my geek status in check when I’m out with friends. Hopefully we see this beauty in the near future.
*Lesson of the day: Use your head, don’t drink and drive. A good use for this watch is to prove to your buddy that you’re too intoxicated to drive, which forces him to be the DD.
