College students develop nail polish to detect date rape drugs

Four students at North Carolina State University hope to tackle a problem on many campuses by developing a nail polish that can detect so-called date rape drugs by changing colors when it comes into contact with them.

 

“Women who wear the polish can simply swirl their fingers in a drink to test it for any colorless, odorless compound that may have been slipped in.”

This is a great idea. Undercover Colors was conceived by four entrepreneurial males. They won $11,000 in a campus contest and met with an investor. I hope this goes far. It needs to in order to protect young women.
