These four students, from North Carolina University, are attempting to put an end to date rape with an awesome new invention.

The guys — Ankesh Madan, Stephen Gray, Tyler Confrey-Maloney and Tasso Von Windheim — have invented a nail polish called Undercover Colors that changes shades when touched by date rape drugs.

A statement on their Facebook page reads

“In the U.S., 18% of women will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime. That’s almost one out of every five women in our country. We may not know who they are, but these women are not faceless. They are our daughters, they are our girlfriends, and they are our friends.”

The company, calling itself the first fashion company to prevent sexual assault, are providing an innovative step towards rape prevention in bars and parties.

The chemicals in the nail polish will be able to detect Rohypnol, Xanax and GHB.

Women can test their drink by stirring it with their finger. The company hopes to make would-be rapists fear the potential repercussions of being caught trying to drug a woman.

Whilst the company has already won $100,000 worth of investment, they are asking for donations to further assist them in making this venture a reality.
