My question is why anyone would want to feel drunk for a few seconds. Maybe it’s just a curiosity.

The WAHH Quantum Sensations device was developed by French designer Philippe Starck and a Franco-American scientist, David Edwards. The WAHH will cost 26 dollars.

Each spray equals 0.075 milliliters of alcohol so it would take 1000 sprays to equal one drink. Phew, my finger is getting tired just thinking about it.
Edwards is also responsible for other spray inventions. The Whif, which allows you to taste flavors including chocolate or coffee without having to eat or drink and the Whaf, an ultrasonic system which creates a cloud of flavor.Wixom Man Charged In Shooting Death Of Father's Ex-Girlfriend
