Smart cups reportedly detect ‘date rape’ drugs

Email Print

Drink Savvy, a Boston-based company, has created a material that changes color when it comes in contact with a drug-spiked drink, ABC News reports.

Founder Mike Abramson said he plans to use the discovery to create a set of products, including cups, glassware, stirrers and straws, that he hopes will be used to help reduce date rape.

“Within the past three years, three of my very close friends … have been the unwitting victims of being drugged,” Abramson said in a fundraising video.

The company is trying to raise $50,000 so it can produce the cups and straws and begin selling them online, according to a fundraising appeal posted on the website Indiegogo.
