Submission + - Funding sought to create prototype date-rape-drug-detecting drinkware (salon.com) 1

boneglorious writes: Funding is being sought by startup company DrinkSavvy to complete a prototype of drinkware (cups, straws, etc) that turn from clear to red-striped when they come into contact with drugs such as Rohypnol. The article makes the point that in order to be attractive to bars, it will need to not be too expensive. However, if this proves successful, I suspect some drinkers will be willing to bring their own cup to the bar.

  • Bars will not buy them, people are not so worried about being given date rape drugs at home, and a glass is far far to big to carry around with you. And that is not even taking into account you would need at least three different glasses; a shot glass, a Martini glass, and a beer glass (so it is not even possible).

    Besides tests strips would be so much more portable, but I am sure they already exist.
