It can be really difficult to know that you’ve had too much to drink while you’re under the influence. Taking control of those situations and having the ability to make smart and safe choices is a must. A new bracelet, called Vive, seeks to do just that.

The bracelet tracks an individuals alcohol and dehydration level through skin sensors. Users simply have to squeeze the band to notify it that they are still in control. If they miss a squeeze, the band will vibrate to let them know that they need to cut back on the alcohol and start drinking some water.

Vive also syncs with other friends in the network. If someone hasn’t responded to Vive in a while and seems to be in trouble, Vive will send notifications to the individuals that have previously been designated that help is needed.
