According to the National Center for Injury and Prevention Control, alcohol-related motor vehicle accidents in the U.S. kill someone every 31 minutes and injure someone every two minutes.

The iBreath lets users test their own blood alcohol content to make sure they haven’t had too much drink before getting behind the wheel of an automobile.   The device is marketed as  a fully functioning alcohol breathalyzer, which also doubles as an FM transmitter.   It broadcasts the tunes from an iPod to an unused FM frequency, so the tracks from the iPod are heard from the radio.

“The idea of an iPod compatible breathalyzer is terrific; especially for people who like to have a drink or two after work. It can’t be any easier than blowing in the tube and looking at the sensor. I can really see these things saving lives,” said Joseph Melilo, a retired New York police officer.

The unit is operated by folding out the blow wand and exhaling into it for at least 5 seconds. Two seconds later, the tool will let revelers know if they’re within the legal limit to drive. It even contains a timer that can be set from 1 minute up to 8 hours in order to remind users when it’s time for the next breath test.

This iBreath iPod accessory requires no batteries, shows all functions and results on the built-in LCD display, measures Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) range within 0.000 – 0.100% and doubles as a wireless FM transmitter.   It is available at various internet retailers.
