Africa Israel Residences, part of the Africa Israel Investments Group led by international businessman Lev Leviev, will present 7 leading projects on the The Israel Real Estate Exhibition in New York on Sep 14-15, 2014.
A joint American-Israeli startup has developed the world’s first breathalyzer attachment for smartphones, in order to prevent drunk driving.
Alcohoot, developed by Jonathan Ofir and Ben Biron, uses a smartphone add-on and application to turn the user’s phone into an accurate Blood Alcohol Content tester.
Ofir told NoCamels that he and Biron thought of the idea after working for the army safety unit and receiving updates about road deaths due to drunk driving.
Alcohooot uses Bluetooth technology and information about the user’s gender, weight, age, and height preprogrammed in, to create an individualized reading. It also stores past breathalyzer results.
It also calculates the amount of time it will take the body to register an acceptable Blood Alcohol Content level if the user has consumed alcohol to excess, and can even “Phone a Friend” to come get the drunken user.
The application will be free, the attachment $99 retail.
