Some people cannot function in the morning without a shot of caffeine to kick start their day, and though caffeine dependency isn't a good thing, the makers of a new product called Sprayable Energy, billed as "the world's first caffeine based topical energy spray" think there could be a market out there open to a new way of getting its fix.

The people behind Sprayable Energy claim that the product delivers just one active ingredient, caffeine, into your body by way of the topical application of a "colorless, odorless liquid." Each time you want a caffeine hit you spray the product onto your skin up to four times, where it will then gradually seep into your system.

The innovation behind Sprayable Energy is the delivery system, with the caffeine being made more soluble by pairing it with "a simple derivative of a naturally produced amino acid, tyrosine."

We've seen products with similar selling points before, with the AeroShot providing a hit of caffeine into the mouth similar to an asthma inhaler. The advantages both methods have is the removal of calories and coffee breath, and the time saved on making and drinking the caffeinated drink.

One bottle of Sprayable Energy (which contains around 160 sprays worth of liquid) costs US$15 through the Indiegogo campaign, with free shipping to anywhere inside the United States. The project had a goal of $15,000 but has already sailed well past that target.

How can that not have any side effects? Caffeine is well known that it eventually causes chronic adrenal exhaustion. Look it up...and that is just one of many sources

What next, a Norplant like version, where you get 6 months of caffeine fix.

I want a version of this for nicotine.

A caffeine implant with timed doses regulated wirelessly by a smartphone app?

This has to be one of the stupidest ideas floated in several years (three cheers for real drug addiction), as well as dangerous to health. Drinking coffee has a self-limiting effect via the acid (one's stomach can only take so much; most people stop when that feels uncomfortable), while this can be injected at will.
Truly bizarre. And this is the product of Mr. Peter Theil, who thinks people are better off doing something like this instead of going to college.

buy a vial of caffeine and taste it :)

First caffeine, then aphrodisiacs, then cocaine, then slo-mo

Perhaps I could plumb it into my shower...
