Three engineering students at SRM University in Chennai have invented a set of electrified underwear to help prevent rape.

The "anti-rape underwear" is designed to shock rapists and alert a victim's family of the sexual assault.

The underwear, called Society Harnessing Equipment (SHE), deploys a 3,800kV charge to anyone touching the outside of the underwear while protecting the wearer with a polymer lining.

It can shock an attacker up to 82 times.

Love, love, love this product! Would be awesome to have an undershirt type garment for children as well.
