Inhaleable caffeine anyone?

Caffeine junkies in the US will soon have a new way to get their fix – through an inhaler.

AeroshotAeroShot, the brainchild of Harvard professor David Edwards (whose credits include chocolate you can inhale, among others) delivers an airborne shot of coffee without the calories or the spills. 

The caffeine is a fine powder that dissolves instantly; each tube holds 100mg worth, or one large cup of coffee, which is the equivalent of 6-8 puffs. Take what you need, and save the rest for later.

It will be available in Boston and New York from January.
