Responsibility in events - Lickalyzer bracelet
At the Solstice festival, the Lickalyzer wristband launched by Karhu, the partner of the event, won the "Social Sponsorship of the Year 2022" series in the Sponsorship & Events Awards competition. Karhu wanted to remind the 2022 Solstice revelers about responsible drinking, so a wrist-mounted tester bracelet was piloted at the festival, measuring blood alcohol content from saliva. The lickable wristband developed with VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and Promilless was distributed to festival-goers, who were enthusiastic about the invention. Event organizers around the world sent requests for the productization of the invention, and the development of the wristband is still ongoing.
