Undergraduate Students Create Nail Polish That Detects Date Rape Drugs

A group of undergraduate students at North Carolina State University are credited with a new kind of nail polish. It’s not just a typical nail polish, this one can detect date rape drugs.

Four male N.C  State students have created, Undercover Colors, a nail polish that changes colors when it is exposed to date rape drugs. It works by having the person wearing the nail polish, stir their drink with their finger. If the nail polish begins to change colors, then the drink has a date rape drug in it.

The students were able to start their invention by raising funds to refine the prototype and pay executives.They ended up “raised $100,000 from one investors, with $150,000 let to sell in the round.”

According to the Washington Post, “55 percent of about 1,570 colleges and universities with more than 1,000 students received at least one report of forcible sex offense on campus in 2012.”

The students even won LuLu eGames, an event put on by N.C. State’s Entrepreneur Initiative. If you would like to donate to the company to help make this nail polish available to everyone, you can donate here.
