SafekeyAntuan Goodwin takes a first look at the Safekey from CES 2011.
What's up everybody? This is Antuan Goodwin for cnet.com. We're on the floor. It's CES 2011 in Las Vegas. Now it's Vegas so I may have been partying a little hard, but how would I know if I had too many drinks to drive safely? I've got a product here called the Safekey and it's basically gonna take that decision out of my hands and help me decide whether I've got the reaction time to react behind the wheel. It's actually a 2-part device. The first part is the hideaway module that installs in line which are vehicles ignition and the second part is this actual little wireless transponder. When you get in your car, you'll actually pull it and it'll have you follow a secret kinda like playing a quick game of Simon. Now if you hit the sequence wrong or it takes you too long to react, it'll actually tell you that it's not okay to drive and it'll actually lock out your vehicle preventing you from driving. Feel it three times in a row and your vehicle locked out for an hour, so you've gotta sit down and kinda cool off, but if you get it right, turn the key and you're on your way. It's actually a pretty simple turnkey device and it actually looks really cool. Well, actually, try and spend a little bit more time with it. Be sure to check out our blog post for the full skinny on the Safekey product. Until then, this has been Antuan Goodwin on the floor at CES 2011.
