High Questions in Science: Nail Polish That Can Detect Date Rape Drugs

by July 8, 2014 0 comments

Back in my time in college I was a chemist for 7 years but all I did was make particles that glowed pretty colors.  These 4 undergraduate students at North Carolina State University are creating something that will really be good for the world.  Currently still in development they are making nail polish that can detect date rape drugs such as Rohypnol and GHB by changing color in their presence.

Their company, Undercover Colors currently has kept pretty quite about their work but we at CyberPot hope they succeed and that there statements below come true.


“With our nail polish, any woman will be empowered to discreetly ensure her safety by simply stirring her drink with her finger”

“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,” the page continues. “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.”
