Students Design “Anti-Rape and Anti-Molestation” Underwear That Electric Shocks Attackers

After the fatal gang molestation of a 23-year-old student on a New Delhi bus last December, 3 Indian engineering students may have found the solution to protecting one's self from rapists.

The students designed this camisole – dubbed Society Harnessing Equipment or SHE – which has pressure sensors sewn in around the bust area to detect groping hands and send out shock which can be up to 82 electric shocks.

Explaining their design, co-inventor Manisha Mohan said: “A person trying to molest a girl will get the shock of his life the moment pressure sensors get activated.”

She explained that she and colleagues Niladri Basu and Rimpi Tripathy decided to put the wiring into the clothing after a survey showed most women were first groped on their bosoms. The women are protected from the current by polymer insulation in the bra.

The makers are currently fine-tuning the design - hoping the garment will be on sale by the end of this month.

  1. Fantastic invention. Im sitting in my portion of planet earth wondering to myself in a layman mode, wont the shock affect both the rapist and the victim? Ok now that they are aware that something, shocks all they have to do is get a skin hold of the victim before groping so when the sparks start to fly, two of them will supply power to Nigeria
