Electronic rape-preventing undies created
New York: A group of engineering students from India claim to have invented an anti- rape underwear.
Manisha Mohan, a student at SRM University in Chennai, built a prototype of the underwear with her two colleagues, Rimpi Tripathi and Neeladri Basu Pal.
The protective underwear is purportedly built to deliver up to 82 electric shocks of 3,800 kV to a would-be offender when pressure sensors on the item detect an unwanted force, the New York Daily News reported.
The panties, named Society Harnessing Equipment (SHE), can also alert police, or family or friends, through a built-in GPS system, to any potential sexual offense which will allow the would-be victim to be easily located.
The inventors are hoping to rollout the commercial production of the panties later this month.
