My friend is an alcoholic who becomes bizarre and sometimes combative (the opposite of his usual good-natured self) after only half a beer or a few sips of vodka or gin. He often goes months between drinks, but when he does drink it leads to a disastrous blackout episode. Sheer luck has kept him from catastrophe, but it's destroying his life.
I suggested he wear a SCRAM-like transdermal alcohol monitoring device that would deliver a painful but not incapacitating electric shock as soon as it detects the alcohol in his bloodstream--a combination of a SCRAM device (http://www.scramsystems.com/) and the Pavlok shock bracelet (http://pavlok.com/). He loves the idea, but we can't find anything like it. So we'd like to build one.
Is this possible with Arduino, and can anyone provide a few tips to a newbie on how to get started on the project?
