American Bazaar: Indian American Develops Date Rape Drug Detector

posted by Randall

Undercover ColorsA nail polish that would change color when it came in contact with a date rape drug is being developed by four entrepreneurs including an Indian American student, reports the American Bazaar.

Their company Undercover Colors is billed as “the first fashion company working to prevent sexual assault.”

The company’s Facebook page describes their prototype this way:

 

“For our first product, we are developing a nail polish that changes color when it comes in contact with date rape drugs such as Rohypnol, Xanax, and GHB. With our nail polish, any woman will be empowered to discreetly ensure her safety by simply stirring her drink with her finger. If her nail polish changes color, she’ll know that something is wrong.

“Through this nail polish and similar technologies, we hope to make potential perpetrators afraid to spike a woman’s drink because there’s now a risk that they can get caught. In effect, we want to shift the fear from the victims to the perpetrators. We are Undercover Colors and we are the first fashion company empowering women to prevent sexual assault.”
