As if today's cellphones don't already have enough features, Japan has gone ahead and added one more. DoCoMo has a new model that is a breathalyzer and cellphone combined. Initially marketed to larger limousine and cab companies to monitor their employees alcohol levels before they hit the road, the history of technology tells us that a trendy personal model can't be far behind!
Implications - It is a smart move to check the drivers of public transit because being intoxicated on the job could lead to serious trouble and even the death of passengers. When a person blows into the breathalyzer it sends the results to their company as well as their location and a picture of their face.
