• Philippe Starck's New Spray Gets You Drunk Instantly
  • Posted 31 months ago by Jack Lowe · culture · 10387 Views
  • Famous French designer Philippe Starck has joined forces with an American scientist named David Edwards to develop a new spray with the power to get you drunk instantly, for just a few seconds.

    The duo have named the concoction, which comes in an aerosol, WA|HH Quantum Sensations. The lipstick shaped object dispenses shots of 0.075 ml of alcohol at a time, the micro-particles of which stimulate the brain. The spray won't be able to get you seriously drunk however, as most drinks have between 40 - 60 ml of alcohol in them, so you'd need about 650 sprays of this to get the same effect. Each WA|HH device contains enough alcohol in it to spray 21 times.

    The product, which costs $26 (approx. 16), was developed to allow people to have the intoxicating pleasure of alcohol but without all the negative consequences - such as hangovers.

    Can you see it taking off?

    • Instant confidence. Being drunk is rubbish anyway, tipsy or merry is so much better.
