AeroShot is a caffeine inhaler.
I can think of lots of drugs (don’t even get me started) that might benefit from coming in the form of an inhaler. Caffeine isn’t one of them. Sometimes the old ways are best – with the attendant ritual, aroma, collective experience:
Or in a pinch I might settle for Penguin Mints.
And anyway they’re already under review by the FDA… which is looking out for our best interests, I’m sure.
FDA To Review Inhalable Caffeine: AeroShot went on the market late last month in Massachusetts and New York, and it’s also available in France. Consumers put one end of the canister in their mouths and breathe in, releasing a fine powder that dissolves almost instantly.
Each grey-and-yellow plastic canister contains B vitamins, plus 100 milligrams of caffeine powder, about the equivalent of the caffeine in a large cup of coffee.
AeroShot inventor, Harvard biomedical engineering professor David Edwards, says the product is safe and doesn’t contain taurine and other common additives used to enhance the caffeine effect in energy drinks. (via Manufacturing.net.)
