Keep track of your alcohol consumption

Do you sometimes find it difficult to keep track of your alcohol consumption when you’re at a function or party? There might be a technological fix for that. American engineers have come up with a tiny device that is worn on the skin like a temporary tattoo and measures the level of alcohol in sweat. In as little as eight minutes the information is wirelessly transmitted to the wearer’s smartphone, allowing them to monitor their booze consumption and avoid driving if they have gone over the legal limit.
