Four men at North Carolina State University are changing the world — with nail polish.

Ankesh Madan, Stephen Gray, Tyler Confrey-Maloney and Tasso Von Windheim have created a nail polish called Undercover Colors, which changes colors when exposed to date rape drugs.

Women can test for the drugs by stirring their drinks with their fingers. If drugs such as Rohypnol, Xanax and GHB are present, it’ll change color.

“With our nail polish, any woman will be empowered to discreetly ensure her safety by simply stirring her drink with her finger,” their Facebook page explains. “If her nail polish changes color, she’ll know that something is wrong.”

With their innovative product, these college guys are hoping to change the world—by instilling fear in the would-be assaulters. “In effect, we want to shift the fear from the victims to the perpetrators,” they explained on Facebook.

According to their social profile, their goal of preventing sexual assault was motivated by the startling statistics—in the United States, 18-percent of women will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime.

“That’s almost one out of every five women in our country,” they explain. “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.”
