Smart Nail Polish
Recently at North Carolina University, four undergraduate students are developing a nail polish that changes color when coming in contact with date rape drugs. The way this polish works is very simple. Once applied, one needs only to dip part of their finger into a drink, something you would be afraid of being compromised while having a night out, and take it out to either reveal the same or changed color. While studies are still ongoing with perfecting the formula, excitement surrounding the project is growing exponentially. Potential buyers of the product are most excited to have a discreet way to keep themselves safe. While this is a recent development in contemporary science, I feel that it is nonetheless still an important asset in science and popular culture.
