The Nail Polish That Detects Date Rape Drugs!

September 3, 2014


In one of the most brilliant moves I have seen in a while, a group of students have invented a nail polish that changes colour when exposed to date-rape drugs.

The beauty of ‘Undercover Colors’ is that the woman will be able to discreetly stir her drink with her finger.

If the polish changes colour then the woman will know she is in danger and can make a sharp exit (and hopefully a call to the police)

Preventing Sexual assault

The firm says it is the “first fashion company empowering women to prevent sexual assault”.

“While date rape drugs are often used to facilitate sexual assault, very little science exists for their detection,” it said on its Facebook page.

“Our goal is to invent technologies that empower women to protect themselves from this heinous and quietly pervasive crime.”

The brainiacs behind this invention are Tyler Confrey-Maloney, Stephen Gray, Ankesh Madan, and Tasso Von Windheim, who are students at the Materials Science and Engineering Department at North Carolina State University.

They were inspired to create the polish after one of their friends suffered a sexual assault.

“As we were thinking about big problems in our society, the topic of drug-facilitated sexual assault came up,” Madan told Higher Education Works.

“All of us have been close to someone who has been through the terrible experience, and we began to focus on finding a way to help prevent the crime.”

Commercially Viable

They are now looking to develop the product so it is able to be sold commercially.

I have to say, everyone here at XEscorts backs them in their quest to improve the safety of women everywhere.

Good luck guys!
