Women are always being told to watch their drinks at parties and at the bar as leaving it unattended can increase the chance of being slipped the Date Rape drug or otherwise known as GHB.
A new device hopes to make going out a lot safer for women that goes above and beyond the testing abilities of cups or coasters.
The pd.id: Your Personal Drink ID was created by technical entrepreneur David Wilson. The tiny device is reusable, battery operated, discrete and in some cases can identify the exact drug.
It’s simple to use, just stick the device in your drink and if no drugs are detected a small LED light will turn green, if drugs are found the light will turn red.
It can work on its own or with a smart phone. According to their indiegogo page, one in four women will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime.
The goal is to raise $100,000 to help fund the project. Once the funding is in place, the device will be sold for $75.
