Akiduki Drunk does your drunk tweeting for you


Sometimes you're just too drunk. If you're too drunk to catch the train, you can sleep in a capsule hotel. If you're too drunk to drive, you can call a cab or friend. And if you're too drunk to put up a bunch of stupid tweets, this robot can do it for you.

Meet "Akiduki Drunk," a combination breathalyzer-slash-twitter-bot created by the Koress Project that looks to me like a voltage regulator (or CB radio) mated to a Twitter logo. When hooked up to LAN cable and plugged in, the little machine will take measure of your alcohol level, tweeting your drunkenness along a four-category scale:

  1. Horoyoi nau (tipsy now)
  2. shosho hebereke nau (a bit drunk now)
  3. daibu hebereke nau (considerably drunk now)
  4. taihen na hebereke nau (dangerously drunk now)

A secret fifth level was discovered "shouten nau" (on the way to heaven now), but to be perfectly honest the process by which you actually set the device up (you need to enter your Twitter account login via a dial) more or less ensures that you'll never be able to get that drunk and still manage to get it to tweet.

For that, you'll need friends or at least a weekend waifu to help out.
