Philippe Starck, creator of international renown and David Edwards, founder of le laboratoire, Harvard professor, and creator of the new field of aerosol cuisine came together to invent WA|HH Quantum Sensations, a mini spray of flavor that, while extremely small (each cartridge holds 2 milliliters of liquid), delivers 20-25 actuations that provide a gustatory and olfactive effect equivalent to a volume 1000 times as voluminous. WA|HH Quantum Sensations can be enjoyed as a spray directly into the mouth or onto foods of all kinds.
The capacity to liberate alcohol flavors and transient vapor with minute quantities of alcohol in the form of tiny micro-particles. The vapor from a single actuation produces a slight light-headedness, but it passes almost immediately.taste and memory of an intense sensation remain.
An actuation delivers approximately 0.075 ml of alcohol liquid in the form of micro particles. this ‘quantum of alcohol’ is far too small to stimulate drunkenness, being nearly 1000 times smaller than a shot of alcohol (a shot contains approximately 40-60 ml). it would therefore take several hundreds of actuations of WaHH Quantum sensations to deliver the alcohol content to the body of a standard glass of alcohol.
I live in Bavaria and we take in alcohol in glasses that hold 1 liter. The alcohol spray will never sell here.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
