An electrical engineer has crafted a working, fully compatible NES cartridge containing a breathalyzer as a video game.

And it works by blowing into the cartridge.

A regular NES cartridge has been loaded with an actual breathalyzer mechanism, which Batsly says he bought from a hardware store. He hacked it into a corded controller that connects to the console just like a normal joystick. After blowing into it for several seconds, the game calculates how slizzered you?ve gotten and awards you with one of several ?results? screens like Buzzed Bee and Party Kitten. Best party game ever? Yeah, I?d say so.
A novelty, but cool nonetheless.
