WA|HH Quantum Sensations, the latest invention of French American scientist David Edwards, is a spray meant to induce drunkenness instantly.
It seems to be David Edwards‘ specialty to create sprays with various effects, as WA|HH Quantum Sensations is not his first product of this kind. Until now, however, the sprays resumed to imitating olfactive and gustatory sensations produced by various drinks and foods. WA|HH Quantum Sensations opens a new chapter, written with instant drunk people in mind. The product is the result of a cooperation between David Edwards, who came up with the idea, and Philippe Starck, who was responsible with the design of the item.
The amount of alcohol delivered by WA|HH Quantum Sensations is minuscule (only 0.075 milliliters per doze), and yet, the effect is achieved in a split second. This is explained by the fact that the particles are very small and the delivery system assures that the alcohol covers a large area of the oral mucosa. Given the small amount of alcohol, it would take 1,000 dozes to equal a normal drink. In other words, the way alcohol is delivered matters more than the amount. Moreover, the designers of this gadget focused more on the intensity of the effect, rather than on its duration.
The ones who really want to get hammered might be disappointed by this alcoholic spray, as the effect only lasts a few seconds. On the bright side of things, this might actually be one of the major strong points of WA|HH Quantum Sensations, since people using it would not have any problems with the police if pulled over. The oral mucosa might absorb the alcohol particles that fast that the breathalyser would not be able to detect anything.
It will not take long till people who crave a few moments of intoxication will simplify the rather complicated name of this gadget to Wahh. Hopefully, that interjection will not symbolize repugnance. The device would allow people to get drunk during their lunch break, thus making them forget the problems they have at work, at least for a few seconds.
The device, which was first exhibited at Le Laboratoire in Paris, will be available shortly in two varieties, at a price of approximately $26. Flash, the first version is said to have a tonic flavor with instantaneous, strong effects. Demon, on the other side, is more stingy. WA|HH Quantum Sensations is not available in the US and no release date is known for this side of the pond. However, once it will get launched here, it will probably become very popular in all sorts of environments, schools included.
What do you think about this gadget? Is it good or bad, given that the effects only last for a few seconds?
