The breathalyzer attaches to your smartphone and uses an ethanol sensor to read users’ blood-alcohol levels. It requires solely that the person blows into its LED illuminated hole for five seconds.
As the company goes Beyond the Tank, we caught up with founder and CEO Charles Michael Yim. When asked what we can expect from the episode, he said the topics discussed include, “Current valuation, partnership with Philips Sonicare and the team at work in our new world class breath analysis lab working on our next innovation.”
Since leaving the Tank, they’ve expanded from 30 employees to an estimated 50 by the end of the year. As far as the Sharks’ continued involvement, he said they are still a part of the business, especially Mark and Kevin, who aid with aspects such as partnerships, distributions, marketing, and investments.
They are currently gearing up to launch a new product this summer, Mint, which monitor oral health. Yim explained how the idea came about, saying:
The idea originated from detecting Halitosis and now has evolved into a oral healthcare monitor giving you transparency to the efficacy of your oral health care regimen and combating gum disease.
