Imagine in your drunk state of mind, you don’t have to be in charge of deciding whether you’re sober enough to drive or not. Well that’s what Hitachi and Honda have teamed up to eliminate. Together, they have made a handheld, smart key that is a portable Breathalyzer that’s integrated into a smart car key. By breathing into this key, it can detect your blood alcohol level, and if it determines it is too high to drive, it will not allow your car to start. I think this is a great invention because many people do not know how high their blood alcohol level is when they go out and they could end up making the stupid decision to drive and either end up in jail or killing someone or themselves. It is also good because it detects your level before even stepping into the car, so the driver is not tempted to still drive once they are already in the car. I think this device can help save a lot of lives by reducing the amount of drunk driving accidents. I think some problems this article has is it didn’t state how much this device costs. Also, the device has only been made in Japan so far and is a prototype for now, so I am curious to know when it will come to the United States and if it will be able to be made in the US or will be imported from places like Japan. If it is created in Japan, I wonder if the blood alcohol level it tests for in Japan is the same as the legal limited in the US? I think the major problem of this device would be people being responsible with this and not having other people blow into it that haven’t been drinking as much so they are able to drive home and put others in harms way. Other than that one small issue people might face, which seems to already be an issue today, I think the device is a great invention and will be able to be used beneficially to save many lives.
