DrOnk

After serious thought and concern for date rape, we designed an attack on it. Our product called DrOnk is an ingenious product that targets the physical aspect of drugging a drink and very difficult to bypass. When leaving a drink unattended, the person has to cover the drink with a coaster and place DrOnk on it. The 3-axis gyroscope detects any movement when tampering with the cup and DrOnk will go red from green. The only way to turn it off is to connect the 3.5mm jack to the phone and type in a specific passcode protecting the user from the drink. We believe DrOnk is not just a product to sell, but a milestone in date-rape prevention.
