Revealed: The caffeine bracelet that substitutes coffee

The Joule bracelet is meant to prevent coffee drinking side effects like stained teeth and energy crashes

Revealed: The caffeine bracelet that substitutes coffee

“Joule,” a bracelet that directly releases caffeine into the bloodstream through a patch, has been created.

Named after a unit of energy, the bracelet contains a replaceable caffeine patch that lasts for four hours and gradually releases caffeine into the wearer’s bloodstream through the skin.

It’s meant to prevent the negative effects associated with drinking too much coffee, such as stained teeth, mood swings, energy spikes, and headaches amongst others.

It was created by co-founders Adam Paulin and Alex Kryuk, experts in neuroscience and medicine.

According to them, the bracelet is not meant to replace coffee, but act as a substitute for when the drink is not available.

Paulin and Kryuk are currently seeking funding for the Joule, which is set to launch in July 2016.

Its prices will start at $29.
