Hangovers, puking, regretable drunk texts, a hole in your wallet. Those are just some of the downsides for a Friday night of binge drinking. We want the high, worry-free moments, the faux boldness to pick up that girl you like, without any of the bad stuff that comes with it.

Introducing the WA|HH Quantum Sensations by prolific designer Philippe Starck and Harvard professor David Edwards, a spray that delivers approximately 0.075 ml of alcohol liquid in the form of micro-particles and reportedly simulates the sensorial pleasure of alcohol, giving the user a brief moment of light-headedness and distraction.

Don’t believe that it works? The guys at VICE tried it out, and guess what? You’ll never know what hit you.

Philippe Starck
