Nail-Polish

Realizing that almost all women can’t do without nail polish, four creative amazing North Carolina State University students have created a nail polish that can detect a date rape drug in a drink.

The new invention called the “Undercover Colors” reacts to drusg and pills in a liquid. Once it is dipped in the drink, it changes color and enables you detect common date rape drugs like Rohypnol, Xanax, and GHB (Gamma-Hydroxybutyric acid). All you have to is stir the drink with your polished finger, if the color changes, it indicates presence of the drugs.

The next question is where can it be purchased right? Well, the students are awaiting FDA approval before it hits the market and they hope will be one step in protection women from predators.

“We wanted to focus on preventive solutions, especially those that could be integrated into products that women already use,” said Ankesh Madan, co-creator of the polish. “All of us have been close to someone who has been through the terrible experience [of date rape], and we began to focus on finding a way to help prevent the crime.”

Some feminists have criticizedthe nail polish, saying it is yet another item to add to a growing list of gimmicky-seeming precautions that includes anti-rape underwear and pepper spray cameras which do little more than “delude” women into believing they’re safe from sexual violence.

There is no harm in embracing all possible measures to protect yourself, so i give this invention a thumbs up! What do you think?
