The ONUSblue patch is the first of its kind and is able to detect alcohol levels without being invasive.
The product comes in the form of a small portable patch that is able to change color when it senses alcohol in the user's body when worn on their skin. Gradient blue colors on the patch reveal how much alcohol there is in the blood based on the shade of blue shown. The ONUSblue start-up will be offering the patch at a very low cost and designed it in the hopes that it would deter people from drinking and driving. It can be used and interpreted by the person consuming alcohol, their peers, bar owners or police officers.
This affordable alcohol-detecting patch could change the way in which people are able to test for blood alcohol levels, providing a non-invasive and comprehensive way to ensure people's safety.
