Created by a student at MIT, glowing ice cubes are now able to calculate how much you are drinking and respond by changing color: green after sip one, yellow after sip two, eventually changing to red signaling you should slow your alcohol intake. The circuit in the ice cube keeps track of time and the number of sips you take. This allows the ice cube to, according to reports, reliably guess your level of intoxication. Should you drink too much, the ice cube will send a text message to your close friends. What will they think of next?
