article imageThere's a breathalyzer app that calls Uber if you are drunk

By Owen Weldon     Oct 25, 2014 in Technology
Breathometer introduced a new device and it lets drivers know how drunk they are. It can also summon a ride for them from Uber if they are over the limit.
Breathometer's device, called the Breeze, turns users' smartphones into a breathalyzer, according to SF Gate.
Brian Sturdivant, the vice president of marketing, said that it is really about consumer awareness and helping people make the right decision.
The Breeze is connected to a mobile app via Blutetooth LE, and not only does it read a user's BAC, but it also provides an estimated time frame of when they will be back to zero.
The app is plugged into the Uber API, which enables users to easily get a ride. They have the option to call a friend or even call a nearby cab company.
According to Venture Beat, the CEO of Breathometer, Michael Yim, said that the device returns results very quickly and the accuracy is law-enforcement quality.
Yim said that they wanted to create something that was easy to carry around and can be used effortlessly so people would want to use it.
The Breeze is available to purchase online at the company's website, and it has a price tag of just about $100. However, Breathometer does have another product that came out before the Breeze, and that one sells for almost $50, but it doesn't have all of the features that the Breeze has.
