Bracelet to test drinks for date-rape drug developed by German Inventors

The German inventors have developed a bracelet for reducing the terrible practice of drink spiking. The drink spiking, which intents in assaulting, robbery or sexual assault have always been a fear of many clubbers.

This bracelet needs just one drop of liquid to be applied on it to identify the presence of “date rape drugs”. The band is available at German healthcare shop dm-drogerie markt. It is white in color and resembles the ribbon used to enter many clubs.

There are two green circles in the band which turns blue if the result is positive for the drugs. The bracelet also intends to deter potential offenders when they see someone wearing it as well as serving as a reminder to the wearer to be mindful of the crime.

Drink spiking is illegal and is banned in the UK, with punishment of maximum 10 years in prison. If an assault, rape or robbery has also taken place, the sentence will be higher.
