Following a brutal attack on a woman in Delhi at the end of last year, three Indian students have developed a bra which is capable of delivering a 3,800v electric shock to potential rapists and attackers and sending text messages with an exact GPS location.
The bra, which was created by Manisha Mohan, an aeronautical engineering student in the Indian city of Chennai, and two fellow students, Niladhri Basu Bal and Rimpi Tripathi, can deliver electric shocks to individuals deemed a threat.
According to the BBC, the 'Society Harnessing Equipment' (SHE) also enables the wearer to send texts to the police or a close relative with the exact GPS location of the incident.
Speaking to the BBC, Ms Mohan said: "The force applied on hugging does not satisfy the conditions for actuation of the device, and there is also a self-actuation switch where a woman can actuate it by herself when in unsafe environment. My vision is to see every women walking confidently on the streets in all parts of the world, even at odd hours."
