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.
