The new drug detection device called “Let’s Be Clear” works very similarly to a home pregnancy test. It was developed by Undercover Colors, based in North Carolina State University, and also famous for one more student invention of the same kind. That is, a student-developed nail polish prototype that, “with a dip of a varnished finger nail in a cocktail, could alert a person that a drink has been contaminated with a date rape drug”.

To use the “Let’s Be Clear” test, that’s about the size of a quarter, take it out of its foil pack,  and put a drop of a drink with a finger on the device.

The results come in 30 seconds, though the FAQs on the website say the test could take a full three minutes to complete.

  • Two lines mean the drink is good, the drink is not drugged.
  • One line means the drink is tampered with.

Currently, a started kit is offered with five single-use tests and four carriers (key rings and carriers that attach to smartphones) as well as 10-piece refill packages. It costs about $5 per test to detect date rape drugs if buying through the website.
