Following the violent gang-rape of a New Delhi woman last year that made international headlines, engineering students in India have created anti-rape underwear that they say will prevent sexual assault.
Called Society Harnessing Equipment, or SHE, the device will deliver up to 82 electric shocks of 3,800 kV to an attacker, according to The Times of India. To prevent the wearer from being shocked, SHE’s inner side is “insulated with a polymer,” according to creators Niladri Basu, Manisha Mohan and Rimpi Tripathy, students at SRM University, Chennai.
The device is also equipped with GPS that can deliver alerts to police and the victim’s parents.
It’s reported that the ladies plan to mass produce their products for rollout this month.
