Girls develop a straw that protects them from knockout drops
Three High school students Victoria Roca, Susana Cappello and Carolina Baigorri from Miami has one straw invented that detects drugs in drinks. If you touch a liquid, it indicates whether the substances KO flunitrazepam, gamma-hydroxybutyric acid, and the anesthetic ketamine are in it. The three girls came up with the idea during a business conference..
“We are aware that straw is not a solution to stop rape forever, but we want to reduce the rate of rape and protect girls from dangerous situations”says Carolina Baigorri of Inside Edition.
Can you still beat it? Yes! Because students already know exactly what their next step will be: a crowdfunding campaign should raise enough money to get the super straws sustainable and in large quantities to produce. All three inventors even patented their brilliant idea: no one else can steal the invention now.
We hope that the magic straws will also be available soon in Germany. After all, the invention fits perfectly in the bag and does not attract attention at parties.

Our goal is to develop technologies that give women the ability to protect themselves from this gruesome and gruesome crimes of increasing size. “
