Students Develop Nail Polish That Can Detect Date Rape Drugs
"Four undergraduate students at North Carolina State University are attempting to produce a nail polish that will reveal the presence of “date rape drugs” such as Rohypnol and GHB by changing color in their presence.
“With our nail polish, any woman will be empowered to discreetly ensure her safety by simply stirring her drink with her finger,” the Undercover Colors Facebook page says.
“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.””
Undercover Colors is in need of funding!
If you are unaware, UC’s date rape prevention nail polish is not actually on the market yet. In fact, they’re still in the research and testing phases, despite what the explosion within internet media might lead you to otherwise believe. They’re currently working to raise $5000 in order to hire another chemist onto their team so that they can hopefully shorten the production time on this first product of theirs by half.
A crowdsourcing campaign (such as kickstarter) is still being considered by the team behind UC, but you can still click here to donate in the mean time, or signal boost to raise awareness!
I’m editing together pictures and video from Tony’s visit here. But there is a loooot of stuff and it’s going to be much more massive than I had anticipated.
So, can I trouble you guys for a vote as to whether or not you’d:
A) Prefer all the footage to be compiled into one video, though it might end up being as long as an hour, maybe more
B) Prefer the footage to be broken up into parts/multiple videos that you can click through one after the other

I’m attracted to intelligence. Not the book smart type of intelligence. I could care less whether you’ve gone to college or how much money you make because of it. I like intelligent conversations that make me think even hours after it’s ended. I soak up words from radical minds.
