Etiquette Checker Tells You if You’re a Drunk or Just Have Halitosis

by Paul Strauss

I love weird Japanese gadgets. Sure, the U.S. has plenty of breathalyzer type devices that tell you if you’re too blotto to drive, but the Japanese gadget makers had to outdo us. Their version can also tell you if your breath just plain stinks.


The Topland Etiquette Checker [JP] has an electro-chemical sensor which will tell your approximate blood-alcohol level. But the really useful part of this thing is the mode where it tells you if you’ve got bad breath.


The display offers 6 levels of breath stinkiness, ranging from from blue smiley face to red dead eyes. Or in laypersons terms, a “1” means you’re ready to play kissy-face, a “4” means it’s time for some Altoids, and a “6” means Satan himself has curled up and died in your mouth, and not even drinking an entire bottle of Listerine will cure your breath, even though it should make you register a perfect score if you switch back to breathalyzer mode.

So if you’re inclined to tie one one regularly, or if you just like to eat onions, you can grab the Topland Etiquette Checker over at Japanese gadget importer Japan Trend Shop for about $63 (USD).
