RALEIGH (AP) - Four North Carolina State University students are getting national media attention after announcing they are developing fingernail polish that changes colors when a date rape drug is present.

Their startup company says that, with the new product when a woman puts her fingertip in a drink, her nail polish will change colors in the presence of common date rape drugs like Rohypnol.

National newspapers in this country and Great Britain have covered their company, Undercover Colors.

While other similar innovations have made media splashes, few have reached the market.
