Looking to get drunk? Can’t stand those hangovers? Can’t handle the taste of alcohol? Then the fine folks at AWOL have a solution for you.

It’s the AWOL machine. AWOL stands for alcohol without liquid and that’s exactly what it is. AWOL vaporizes your liquid shot and turns it into a breathable gas.

Since AWOL combines your liquor with oxygen (a supposed hangover cure) and there’s no liquid to linger in your body, AWOL provides all the feelings of getting drunk with none of the hangover.

Additionally, it says that AWOL will get you drunk quicker and off of less alcohol. It takes about 20 minutes to inhale one shot of AWOL (which came from around 1/2 a shot of any 40 proof liquor). The makers recommend you never have more than 2 20 minute sessions every 24 hours if that gives you an idea of the effects.

How much will one of these bad boys set you back? A home kit for the single user is only $299. For commercial use they have a 2 person version for $2595 an da 4 persion for $2895.

So is this cool? Will it change alcohol forever? Personally, I’m not excited. To me this removes the whole social element of drinking and makes it into a drug like anything else out there. Whatever happened to a classic scotch on the rocks? Do we really need scotch on the vapor?
