World's First "Smart" Breathalyzer Kiosk

Minneapolis, MN -- The IntoxBox Interactive Breathalyzer is the world's first "smart" commercial breathalyzer for bars and events. Developed by Walden Innovative Resources, Inc. in Minneapolis, the IntoxBox has a 19-inch touch screen monitor that guides users through the testing process with an entertaining, interactive display.

The IntoxBox invites users to guess their score. Once they take the test, it graphically compares their guess with their real score. If you guess correctly, you win a free test. An activation code for your free test can be instantly texted to your cell phone or sent to your email.

Once the test is completed, a call cab icon appears on the screen. Once users touch the icon and enter their cell phone number, the IntoxBox instantly calls a cab to the bar. When the machine is not being used for intoxication testing, it displays ads on its 19-inch monitor.

The IntoxBox is currently installed in about 30 Minnesota bars, with several dozen more machines installed in about 15 other states. The company is currently building a larger network through independent operators across the country.

Walden Innovative Resources (WIR) has gone through about three years and three models before finally perfecting the IntoxBox. "After a lengthy period of testing and innovation, we finally have a machine that is very accurate and easy for customers to user," explains Ryan Walden, WIR president.

In addition to bars and restaurants, the IntoxBox is also used for private parties, wedding receptions and corporate events where alcohol is served.

The IntoxBox is equipped with a credit card swipe and a dollar bill acceptor. In most locations customers are charged $2 per use or three tests for $5.

The company is currently in the process of raising additional equity through private investors to accelerate expansion.

For more information on the IntoxBox, please contact Gene Walden at 952-926-0964 or email to genewalden@intox-box.com.

BreathAdvisor looks to be another option. We'll have to wait and see how their interface looks.
