From their website: "In May 2016, an initial BACtrack Skyn prototype was awarded the grand prize and $200,000 in the Wearable Alcohol Biosensor Challenge. The challenge was issued by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), part of the National Institute of Health. The goal of the competition was to find an accurate, non-invasive and continuous way to measure a user’s alcohol level in order to aid researchers. Our latest two designs are improved and smaller versions of our initial prototype."
Pretty good vote of confidence -- granted, this is will be a miniaturized version of the device that won.

Anyhow, hentaiboy said:Apple watch data will show he got cold feet and did a runner from his bride to be 😂
Considering they believe he was literally sawed into pieces with a bone saw, this is an extremely insensitive comment.
I understand deliberate delay so as not to jump the gun on new tech, but how can a company with such vast resources suck so much at delivering on its own, publicly-announced promises?
If you're not ready, don't announce.
If you're not sure if you're ready, don't announce.
It's not "high standards" or "quality control" when you think something is ready for primetime and then have to back pedal; it's proof that there's a disconnect between at least two of your departments.
pmc said:Great site and thank you for the articles HOWEVER, that is not what begging the question means.
Wikipedia has this as an example of, “begging the question”:Left-handed people are better painters because right-handed people can't paint as well.
The argument (left-handed people are better painters) is supported by the second part (right-handed people can’t paint as well [as left-handed people]), which is erroneous and also asserts the same basic premise as the first.
This is the GM of iOS 12 because the next release won’t be.
... would be begging the question.
snowweasel said:I’m just curious why it won’t measure for people under 22 years old?
- The scope of data against which the device was validated / certified only went down to patients of age ~22, and/or
- The heart isn't considered "fully developed" until ~22 (which would be why data is / has not been collected for this age range)
I've always maintained that "the must-have" apps are largely tied to the input capability (typically sensors) available to developers -- GPS, camera (and features), Bluetooth, NFC, etc.
We've been on a "must-have app" plateau for a few years. When 3D sensing is made available to developers, the next few "must have" apps will arrive.
