Three Indian Students Invent Anti-Rape Undergarment to Shock Attackers

In their proposal, Mohan and Tripathi explained how they came up with the idea:

Studying in a convent girls school, we were always taught to be good to everyone around and bear a cheerful smile. After stepping into the real, cruel world we realized that our smile could not last for long as the threat to our purity and integrity always lingered on. [Lawmakers] take ages to come up with just laws and even after that, women are unsafe. Hence, we have initiated the idea of self‐defense which protects the women from domestic, social and workplace harassment. We came across many such incidents of harassment during our survey [of] women’s hostels. So we decided to make this project which can be implemented easily. We have used technologies which are being used in day to day life (GPS, GSM, pressure sensors) in our innovation to bring a simple solution to this serious problem existing in our society.


Niladri Basu Bal, Manisha Mohan, and Rimpi Tripathi

What do you think—will this technology have an impact? Is this something you would wear under your clothes?
