Video: Ice Cubes Will Alert You When You're Drunk

By Robert Paul Reyes

 

"The ice cubes, which are actually waterproof jelly made to look like cubes, are stuffed with LEDs and a device that measures movement. With each sip of your drink, the cubes keep track of your intake, and go from green to orange to red based on how much you imbibe. Bonus: The cubes are sensitive to vibration, so they flash with the music, "making you look extra cool in the club,` and making it awfully hard for you to forget the cubes are there."

Sounds like a cool I idea, but upon further review it sucks!

By the time the cubes change from green to orange to red you will be so drunk that you will swallow the cubes stuffed with LEDs.

I can count and keep track of how many drinks I`ve had. I don`t need no stinkin` high-tech cubes to tell me that I`ve had too much to drink.

These cubes will encourage binge-drinking! It`s fun to watch ice cubes change color, naturally morons will drink more than they should just to watch the cubes change colors.

The cubes flash with the music: Great, I will be drunk and have a seizure at the same time.

These fancy ice cubes should be flushed down the toilet.
