These LED ice cubes will keep you from getting too drunk

Most of us, we get way too drunk for our own good, never learn from it, and continue to binge on alcohol for the rest of our lives. But 23-year-old MIT grad student Dhairya Dand isn’t like most of us, so when he woke up from an alcohol-induced blackout, he decided to invent LED ice cubes — equipped with an accelerator and timer to predict how drunk the drinker is — that progressively turn from green to yellow (warning) to red (danger!) to warn drinkers.

The cubes can also connect to a friend’s mobile phone to alert him or her that that the drinker is overdrinking. Pretty smart if you ask us.
