BIG developments have been made by tech experts into preventing drink-spiking.
A UK-based company has developed ‘Spikey’, a small plastic tube and stopper that fits into most glass bottles to prevent people dropping substances in the drink.
Clubs can even order them in bulk to hand out to their patrons.
If you don’t fancy a bottled drink then another gadget is here to help. Developed by David Wilson, a medical technology expert, ‘pd.id’ is a small, USB drive-sized device to put in your drink that flashes if the drink is tampered with.
It can even be synced to a smartphone and give notifications if the chemical composition of your drink changes.
