Indian students invent shock-emitting anti-rape lingerie

Engineering students in India have developed lingerie that can shock a person up to 82 times and automatically contact the authorities.

“The lingerie with global positioning system, global system for mobile communications and also pressure sensors is capable of sending shock waves of 3,800 kV as well as alerts to parents and police,” Manisha Mohan of the SRM University in Chennai told The Times of India.

Mohan developed the undergarment along with Niladri Basu Bal and Rimpi Tripathi following well publicized and particularly brutal rapes in India.

The anti-rape lingerie — called “Society Harnessing Equipment” — contains an electric shock circuit board near the breasts along with GPS and GSM modules. The three students said the electric shock circuit board was placed near the breasts because surveys had found most attackers targeted that area of the body first.

“A person trying to molest a girl will get the shock of his life the moment pressure sensors get activated, and the GPS and GSM modules would send an SMS on emergency number 100, as well as to parents of the girl,” Mohan added.

The Delhi gang rape of a 23-year-old student in December sparked outrage across the country, leading to a wave of protests. India’s president later approved harsher punishments for rapists, including the death penalty.

Rape and sexual harassment still plagues many parts of India despite the public outcry and legislative action. Last month in India, a British tourist was injured after jumping from a balcony in an attempt to flee a sexual assault and a Swiss cyclist was allegedly gang raped.

  4. The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested
    to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just
    so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now
    destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally
    off topic but I had to share it with someone!
