Coffee Bracelet Delivers Caffeine Fix Through The Skin

Coffee Bracelet Delivers Caffeine Fix Through The Skin

Joule is a wearable bracelet that feeds caffeine directly into your bloodstream. Yes really!

It might sound like science fiction, but it is very real and early users are reporting it gives them an even bigger, more sustained buzz than an espresso.

Transdermal patches, containing infused substances of nicotine and caffeine, already exist on the market of course.

But most people complain about the general discomfort in wearing a sticky adhesive all day underneath their clothes.

This revolutionary bracelet is better designed to take away that discomfort and start working as soon as you put it on your wrist, says the Canadian manufacturers.

The caffeine is absorbed faster than through oral administration thanks to the adhesive patch in direct contact to the skin.

One patch contains roughly the same amount of caffeine as any cup of coffee, and if you are good enough at math, you would realise it’s a great alternative to save your money.

Its makers also say it’s perfectly safe too.

“Transdermal administration is simply another method of helping active ingredients reach your blood stream, which is also the goal of digestion,” says Joule.

At $40 for the bracelet and starter kit of 30 patches, you will get your coffee fix for a little over a dollar a day.

But what’s really make it so convenient is that Joule works gradually for a steady supply of caffeine and energy for at least four hours due to the slow release and constant flow into your bloodstream.

Now you can fight against the nasty caffeine crash inevitably hitting you 30 minutes after drinking a cup of coffee. Plus, it won’t yellow your teeth and be acidic on your stomach the way coffee does.

“Joule was created to help caffeine consumers emphasize the highs of their caffeine consumption experience while eliminating the lows,” Adam Paulin, a cofounder of Joule, tells Tech Insider.

Right now, the crowd-funded Joule bracelet comes in black, blue, and pink with durable silicon.
