WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) -- It may look like an ordinary cup and straw to the casual observer.

It's not. It's a cup and straw that can actually detect whether someone has slipped a date rape drug into a drink.

It will change color when an odorless, colorless or tasteless rape drug is detected.

The founder of the Boston-based company, DrinkSavvy, developed thecontainer after his own drink was laced with a sedative.

The drug dectecting cups are expected to be available early next year.
