Drinkware of the Future Changes Color When Your Drink is Spiked
December 18th, 2012
With so many people looking to take advantage of others when they get the chance, it’s high time for innovations like these to become a reality. So what exactly makes DrinkSavvy drinkware special?
Well, for one, it might just save your life.
The Boston-based group have managed to create a special material that changes color when it detects the presence of drugs. Specifically, date rape drugs, including GHB, Ketamine, and Rohypnol. So if a cute guy (or girl – hey, it could happen both ways) comes to you with a drink in hand, you know what to do – use your DrinkSavvy cup, straw or drink stirrer.
The motivation for creating DrinkSavvy? Founder Mike Abramson explains that it’s because of his friends: “Within the past three years, three of my very close friends and myself have been the unwitting victims of being drugged.”
DrinkSavvy’s products are currently up for funding on Indiegogo with the hopes of not only producing the line for personal use, but to help get them distributed in bars, clubs and colleges. They’ve got a long way to go, so make a pledge if you think it’s a good idea.
