(WXYZ) - Sipping on coffee and downing energy drinks could soon be a thing of the past.
A new product called AeroShot is an inhalable form of caffeine.
Sound futuristic? It’s not. AeroShot is already on the shelves in New York and Massachusetts, plus you can purchase it online.
AeroShot comes in the form of an inhaler, about the size of a lipstick tube. Each plastic canister contains 100 milligrams of caffeine—about the same amount that’s in a large cup of coffee.
The makers claim AeroShot will give you a quick pick-me-up without filling you up, and the product even boasts zero calories.
However, critics say the product doesn’t come without some health risks. There’s fear it could be abused since it’s a quick hit of energy.
