French designer Philippe Starck has created an aerosol spray that lets users enjoy alcohol without getting drunk or hungover.
Each pump of the WA|HH spray delivers just 50-75 microliters of alcohol but it’s spread over a much wider surface area than a drop directly applied to the tongue, releasing vapour that gives users a light-headed sensation. The feeling is temporary and there are no ill effects because there’s not enough alcohol in the body to sustain drunkenness – consuming the entire canister wouldn’t bring you close to inebriation. In fact you’d need 1000 sprays just to equal the alcohol in a standard shot. The spray can be applied to food or directly into the mouth and comes in two flavours: apparently Flash Quantum resembles Vodka while Demon Quantum is more spicy.
