The Talking Breathalyzer

http://www.vimeo.com/27611956

(be advised, the above video contains a few mild swear words)

The folks at opengadgets have created a little project called the “Talking Breathalyzer”:

A customizable Breathalyzer that talks and tells you how much you’ve had to drink. It’s also open source and can easily be modified with your own text on the LCD screen and audio MP3 files.

When tethered to a PC with a USB cable, it has additional features including character animations, Breathalyzer Tweets, text to speech, weather and stock read-outs, and a Photobooth feature.

This website contains instructions on how to build the Talking Breathalyzer yourself. A pre-assembled Talking Breathalyzer will also be available by mid Septemeber 2011 from Seeedstudio. The Talking Breathalyzer is not a professional Breathalyzer and should be used for Amusement Purposes Only.

You can check out the schematic here, and download the source here.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Always nice to see finished projects rather than just some wires on the workbench! Great job.

  2. If you’re so wasted that you can’t read the display and actually need the breathalyzer to speak the result for you, you can probably already guess what kind of leves you’re going to get. 😀
