Saab is developing a small breathalyzer that is integrated in the car key preventing drunk drivers start their car.
When the car open button is pushed the breathalyzer is switched on and the driver has to blow into the mouth piece to enable the car to be started. If a red light comes on driver has to much alcohol in his or her breath and the car will not start - bummer!
The Saab Alcokey prototype is stil 10cm long and 4cm wide and not integrated in the key itself. The Alcokey is currently trailed in Sweden.

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.
