Floome, founded in Padua in 2013 by Fabio Penzo, Marco Barbetta and Luca Escoffier, has developed a device, with a dedicated app for smartphone, that allows anybody to transform one’s smartphone into a blood alcohol level measuring device.
Thanks to the technology developed by Floome engineering team, the pocket-sized device is competitively priced compared to traditional breathalysers. It uses their own sensors, has an internationally award-winning design, and does not need charging or for the batteries to be replaced.
The Floome app also allows you to call a taxi or a friend for a lift home, or even to find a place to eat something. Floome’s goal is to have a positive impact on society by , discouraings people from driving whilst under the influence of alcohol. The start-up expects to develop important partnerships with various companies in 2017 that will allow to offer additional services.
