Is instant coffee not instant enough for you? Then luckily for you, U.S. engineers have invented a small inhalable caffeine stick that gives an instant energy kick and are set to launch their product onto the global market.
Harvard professor David Edwards has developed The AeroShot Pure Energy, a lipstick-like device containing vitamin B and 100mg of caffeine to be inhaled and enjoyed by caffeine fiends.
“It’s a new way of experiencing energy. It’s very convenient, you can just take a puff when you need to and enjoy it in different circumstances,” said Edwards, who plans to launch the product in New York and Boston this January.
Each stick contains between six to eight puffs of pure energy. Edwards admits using it daily, but warns against exceeding three hoots a day.
Caffeine is the world’s most widely consumed psychoactive drug and its health benefits versus hazards are constantly debated.
Since the AeroShot meets regulations for the Transportation Security Administration (the U.S. agency for transport security), it can even be consumed aboard a commercial aircraft, unlike your regular coffee shop latte.
Edwards’ inhalable contraptions first made headlines last year when he launched Le Whif, a similar aerosol device that sprays particles of chocolate into the mouth.
