A mobile app by the name of “Breathometer” received $2M in funding yesterday (October 17, 2013) – the app’s goal is to give BAC readings via a breathalyzer device that is integrated with the app. If you give a reading that is over the legal limit, the app will help you find alternative transportation. In April of this year, the app raised a little over $138k through an IndieGoGo campaign, while yesterday’s round of funding came from Mark Cuban (the creators appeared on his show “Shark Tank”) and firms Structure Capital VC and Dillon Hill Capital. Available now for preorder, the device will cost $50 and connects through the mobile device’s audio jack.
