Every fluid or drink is made up of a spectrum of molecular components. 

Once immersed, the collects a tiny sample of the fluid in its reservoir.

It then performs three different tests to identify the drink and its components.

Although extremely high tech in function, is very easy to use. Simply dip, wait a few seconds and the LED light will indicate if your drink has been drugged.
The can also pair and function in tandem with your smart phone, accessing an extensive database of drink profiles and alerting you with a text or call that your drink has been tampered with. is a piece of technology, but it’s actually so much more.
It’s about personal protection, feeling secure and it’s about empowering our daughters, sons, sisters, brothers, spouses, partners, friends, coworkers and ourselves to be safe in an often unsafe world.

We also really value the power of early adopters in best determining the direction this device is heading. We’d love to get your feedback on the shape, style, colour options and anything else you think would add value and help shape’s final version. Please post your comment in the tab above and we will get back to you as soon as possible. 

Our goal is to raise $50,000. This will enable us to get out to market within six months at a per item cost of $75. A successful campaign will provide us the funds to finalize the design and functionality to create a tool that enhances everyone’s personal safety.
