In the not-so-distant future, a "temporary tattoo" may warn you when you've had too much to drink.
The device — created by engineers at the University of California, San Diego — is really two parts: film that can detect your blood-alcohol level and a flexible circuit board that sends the information to you.
Of course, blood samples provide the most accurate readings of blood-alcohol content. Breathalyzers are more common and noninvasive, but they can give inaccurate readings.
