A company in Boston has created a line of cups and straws that they say can detect date-rape drugs.

DrinkSavvy Inc. said its products change color if an odorless, colorless or tasteless rape drug is detected.

The company’s founder said he came up with the idea after his own drink was laced with a sedative.

On its website, DrinkSavvy says it expects to roll out the line of drug-detecting cups and straws by the middle of 2014.
