What if you could safeguard yourself against repeated offenders while also sending your live location to your loved ones?
A student from Karnataka, Kalaburagi, has designed anti-rape footwear with a GPS tracker installed for the safety of the girls/women from harassers.
Vijaylakshmi Biradar, a class 10th student of SRN Mehta School, Kalburgi, has developed this unique gadget for the protection and safety of girls/women from delinquents and goons harassing them.
Anti-rape Footwear Working Mechanism
Biradar, who won an Innovation Expo and International Invention award recently in Goa for her invention, disclosed that the footwear works on the mechanism of conventional current flowing through a battery. When an assaulter tries to attack a girl, a kick from the anti-rape footwear will electrocute the attacker.
Biradar also installed an in-built GPS in the footwear which will not only send her live location to her guardians but also give out an alert and SOS message to them immediately.
Biradar’s teacher disclosed that Vijaylakshmi Biradar has been working on this project since 2018, when she was merely in 7th or 8th standard, starting her junior high school.
Biradar has won many accolades and awards for this project.
