Need to get drunk in a hurry? Well, modern science has a solution for impatient alcoholics!
Reportedly, a French-American scientist has invented a new alcohol spray that instantly intoxicates the user, with a single pump.
There is a catch, however – the sensation of being drunk lasts only moments, and within seconds the effects are gone, leaving behind no trace of intoxication (or hangover!)
The short-term effects are due to the incredibly small dosage, “0.075 milliliters, according to reports. That means it would take 1000 sprays to equal the amount of alcohol in one regular drink.”
The spray , WA|HH Quantum Sensations, was created by David Edwards. It was revealed to the public during a recent exhibition in France. Previously Edwards has created other sprays tasting of treats like coffee or chocolate, giving the user a ’boost’ of flavour without any calories.
While it has novelty usage, the longer view could see more useful applications of the science.
As John Bruliera wrote in response to an article regarding the spray: “Inventing a device that will make you instantly SOBER would garner much more interest, I’m sure”.
