iBreath: the iPhone Breathalyzer

August 9, 2009 at 3:04 PM Leave a comment

Innovation in the App Store has been rampant, but worthwhile development inthird-party devices (save a few battery backups/boosters) has been sparse. iBreath, a Breathalyzer and FM Transmitter for the iPod (and unofficially for the iPhone), is a new and notable exception.

The device, sold by David Steele Enterprises, is priced at $79. Originally circa 2006 the device sold with the FM Transmitter and in two colors for about $50. The latest iteration of the device has evolved to be bit more modern with better controls for the FM Transmitter. It’s compact and fits on the bottom of an iPod and displays the “Made for iPod” logo. While the device is attached, you can transmit your music via FM transmitter to your car stereo or other FM receiver.

The iBreath is charged by your iPod battery and lets you perform your own breath test to determine whether or not you can safely drive home after drinking. You simply grab your iPod with the attached iBreath and fold out the “blow wand” and exhale into it for a minimum of five seconds. Within two seconds after the test, the device will display the results of your breath test. Accordingly you’ll know your blood alcohol content (BAC) level within the range of 0.0000 – 0.100% and whether or not you are at the legal limit restricting your ability to drive. Laws vary from state to state, so you’ll have to consult local laws to determine your BAC limits. Texas’ limit, for example, is .08%. A built in timer can be used to remind you to test yourself again within one minute to up to eight hours.
