Die Phone that doesn't work if you're drunk

LG Electronics' LP4100 mobile phone, which is already on sale in South Korea, stops its owners making embarrassing calls by blocking selected numbers if they are over the limit.

The phone, which is to go on sale in Britain soon, is fitted with a breathalyser. The user blows into a small hole on the side of the phone, and if her or she has exceeded the drink driving limit, the phone gives a warning and displays an animation of a car swerving and crashing into traffic cones. The user can also block pre-select numbers from the address book if the breathalyser is positive: popular choices to be blocked include ex-girlfriends or boyfriends, and bosses.

More than 200,000 of the phones have already been sold in South Korea. The LP4100 is fitted with other features, such as a camera and an organic light-emitting diode (OLED) screen, as well as the breathalyser.
