London: No need to booze to get drunk. Researchers claim to have come up with a spray that can make you instantly drunk -- but wears off after a few seconds.
A team, led by David Edwards and designer Philippe Starck, says it has created WA|HH Quantum Sensations, a spray canister that puffs a whiff of alcohol that mimics the effects of a martini for just a moment, the `Daily Mail` reported.
The duo unveiled their product on Wednesday in Paris and promise that the "food spray for the future" won`t leave their customers with splitting headaches.
"We asked ourselves whether we might provide the same agreeable sensation as comes with a sip of alcohol without running the risk of drunkenness. A spray of WA|HH and the shock is immediate, like a sensorial alarm," Starck said.
Each WA|HH canister, which contains two millimetres of alcohol, delivers just 0.075 millimetres per dose, a thousand times less than a cocktail. People who puff will even be able to pass a breathalyzer test moments after ingesting the spray.
They promise that their product allows people to enjoy the "the pleasure of alcohol without worrying about negative consequences".
Users will feel instantly light-headed when the vapour hits the mouth, but the feeling will pass as quickly as it came. They hope that WA|HH will be more like an experience or memories, rather than a late-night foray, say researchers.
Flash Quantum and Demon Quantum, the two WA|HH flavours, each cost 26 pounds.
