What if you could wear your caffeine instead of drinking it? Co-founders Adam Paulin and Alex Kryuk have developed the Joule Caffeine Bracelet, which allows consumers to get their caffeine fix without actually consuming their vice of choice (coffee, tea, energy drinks).
The bracelet delivers caffeine directly into the bloodstream using a transdermal caffeine patch, through a process known as transdermal administration. Since caffeine is administered gradually through this technique, energy crashes, jitters, and other negative effects associated with consuming caffeine in beverage form do not exist with the Joule Caffeine Bracelet, according to the product’s Indiegogo page.
Each Joule patch contains the same amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee but is administered over four hours. Other negatives associated with consuming caffeinated beverages that Joule circumvents are stained teeth, stomach pain, and bad breath. In terms of costs, using a Joule bracelet costs less than $1 per day. A Joule Starter Kit ($29+shipping) includes a bracelet and one month’s supply.
