iPhone DUI Prevention? –
Before getting behind the wheel after a night out, a driver can test his blood alcohol level with new apps that not only give a reading but can call a cab. Breathometer, for iPhones and Android smartphones, and BACtrack, for iPhones, display a user's blood alcohol level within seconds on smartphone-connected breathalyzers. Or, like the novelty breathilizer machines in bars - people will probably just use it to see who can get the drunkest. Either way – very cool invention.
