|The Rotgutonix Booze Detector let you know what's you¡¯re really drinking. Rotgutonix has a built-in chemical sensor that can detect the chemical composition of 6 brands of liquor: Johnnie Walker, JB, DYC, Havana Club, Pampero and Brugal. They expect in future version that be able to analyze the chemical composition of over 20 well-known brands, mainly rum, whisky, gin, and vodka.
"Just dip the Rotgutonix pen into a glass of alcohol (no mixers, please), and let it soak for 20 seconds. The pen¡¯s liquid-crystal display will tell you if you¡¯re about to drink some real whiskey or some nasty rotgut, it¡¯ll tell you. While I don¡¯t usually frequent bars that serve things in a jug marked ¡°XXX¡±, apparently the serving of nasty bottom-shelf stuff in the wrong bottle is a more common practice in Europe than it is here in the States. As a matter of fact, product designer Emilio Alarc¨®n decided to create the gadget after he had a bad run-in with a couple of glasses of headache and nausea-inducing rotgut in Spain."
