Students come up with anti-rape gadgets

Anti-rape underwear, a fashionable vest that can jolt molesters out of their wits or a watch-like device fitted to give abusers an electric shock - students from various colleges and schools in the country are channeling their outrage and anger over sexual attacks on women in the country through several futuristic innovations.

Externally, it looks like a nightgown, ordinarily worn by women or teenage girls, but the garment is literally a power packed GPS and sensor-enabled device capable of temporarily incapacitating assaulters off their feet by triggering an 3800 kV electric shock at the press of button by the wearer. ‘It was the pain of every women, which triggered the idea. All the more, it was hatred against molesters and eve- teasers which led to this design,’ says Manisha Mohan the inventor of the ‘anti-rape underwear’ and what she calls ‘SHE’ or Society Harnessing Equipment.  Apart from administering a powerful shock to the assaulter the garment is also devised to send an alert to the police when the sensors are activated.
