PLEASE NOTE - YOU MUST BE 18+ TO RESPOND AND THIS IS HYPOTHETICAL IDEA AND WILL NOT BE PRODUCED
For one of my final year projects at university, I have been asked to come up with a new, innovative product idea. My idea is to create a keyring which includes a personal attack alarm, torch and a reusable device that can test drinks if they have been spiked with any dangerous substances. Would you use this product and would it make you feel safer on a night out or at an event?

After having my phone stolen, i did feel a bit safer having a personal attack alarm, i think most people have phones with torches but if the device is quite small then it would be useful having all 3.

How would the drink tester be reusable? Wouldn't you need disposable test strips?

Maybe something to alert local police stations? Personally I don't know how loud an alarm can be if you are in a very loud area of city but and/or out of anyones sight so I wouldn't feel too safe. I also feel like it could be knocked out of my hand. But if I am in a bar around people it has potential.
