This nail polish can save every woman in the planet!
Women and girls often fall victims to men who drug their drinks at bars. This is the time when they are most vulnerable, especially when they are under the influence of alcohol. What many women don’t realize is that men easily slip drugs into their drinks—no matter how vigilant they may be.
‘Roofies’ are usually used by rapists to drug women at bars–and the sad thing is they are not even aware how easily they are drugged.
Four students from North Carolina State University decided they wanted to try to do something to help prevent these crimes.
In their project called ‘Undercover Colors’, the young men created a special nail polish which can detect various substances in liquids. One need simply sneak their finger into their drink if they suspect something strange—if the nail polish changes color, then it contains drugs!
The plan is to also produce a clear nail polish, so that men (who typically don’t wear colored polish) can protect themselves by using this clever invention, too. What do you think of their invention?
