Radical times call for radical ideas. A San Francisco-based team has developed a caffeine-based topical energy spray promising to deliver a steady dose of energy for hours at a time. How does it work? Well, caffeine, as they note helpfully, permeates the skin, and they’ve employed some whizbang patent-pending technology using a simple derivative of tyrosine to increase the solubility of caffeine five-fold.

The project is now appealing for funds on Indiegogo, and the starter pack at $15 gets you a bottle of energy (worth 160 sprays!) slated to ship in November. Remind us not to doze off while waiting.
