Clubs and bars might soon roll out new glassware in its venues to help fight date rape. A new technology developed by Drink Savvy causes cups to change color when it detects popular date rape drugs.

The Boston-based company has successfully created a material for cups, glassware, stirrers and straws that will alert people if GHB, ketamine or rohypnol has been slipped into their drink. The drugs are hard to detect, and therefore used to take advantage of people, beause they are ordorless, colorless, and tasteless. Drink Savvy founder, Mike Abramson explained why he developed the product line in his promo video:

“Within the past three years, three of my very close friends and myself have been the unwitting victims of being drugged.”

Abramson is looking to raise $50,000 on IndiegogoCheck out Drink Savvy's campaign here. Hopefully Abramson's products will get funded and then carried in bars, effectively killing the playing field for low-lifes.
