Red Wine Hangover Device

Hosted by

Professor Richard Mathies designs the red wine hangover device. A drop of wine is placed in the prototype, currently the size of a small briefcase, which determines the amine levels in five minutes. He discusses possible causes of the red wine headache and the various amines levels in alcoholic beverages. Mathies teaches chemistry and is the director of the Center for Analytical Biotechnology at the University of California at Berkeley.
