Nissan is introducing a vehicle that showcases its soon-to-be-released anti-drunk driving technology. The car’s "multiple preventative features" were designed to curb drunk driving by detecting the driver's state of sobriety.

So how does it know you’ve had too much booze?

Well, how about odor sensors built into the locking shift knob? Or seat-mounted sensors that can activate a voice and navigation screen warning? Or what about a facial monitoring system that determines your "state of consciousness through your eyes."

Whoa.

George Orwell is turning in his grave…

…and so is Van Halen….
