Teenager Develops Anti-Rape Underwear That Features A Lock, Camera, And GPS Tracker

She’s taking matters into her own hands.

Rape is a sexual crime that has become more common throughout the world. In India, it is reported that one woman is raped in every 15 minutes. Rape also happens to be the fourth common crime in the country and most of the cases go unreported. With the alarming rape statistics, one young girl decided to step up and help women protect themselves from attackers.

Seenu Kumari spent less than $68 to develop an underwear designed to help female victims against rape cases. The features include a combination lock, an emergency call button and a GPS tracker.

Sexual crimes against women and children are rampant in Seenu’s town. It’s a common occurrence for women to be assaulted out in the open. Some of them will be featured in rape pornography, which would be sold out in the market.

Women don’t have to wear Seenu’s anti-rape underwear at all times. It is best worn when a woman is traveling without a companion or if she needs to pass by a place that’s considered unsafe. Seenu hopes to protect women from men who have malicious thoughts.

“This can help save the woman from wicked men who would try to violate her dignity.”

Seenu has provided a smart lock on the rape-proof underwear, which will require a password for it to open. The pink garment also comes with a GPS tracker that will send the victim’s location whenever she alerts authorities. If a woman feels she’s about to be attacked, she can simply press the emergency call button, which contacts a preset number, alerting the police, as well as, the relatives of the victim.

The underwear also has a video camcorder to capture and store photos of the assailant.

Seenu’s prototype has yet to receive a patent after being sent to the National Innovation Foundation in Allahabad. The young inventor said her creation only needs better quality of clothing and equipment before it can be fully ready to be marketed to the public.

The Sad Story of the Filipino Slave Whose Tattooed Skin Was Displayed at Oxford

In the late 1600s, an unfortunate Filipino slave with intricate tattoos was brought to England and became known as the “Painted Prince.”

By

In the late 1600s, a Filipino slave caused quite a sensation when he arrived in England. The Filipino was given the name "Prince Giolo." People also called him the "Painted Prince" because his body was adorned with intricate tattoos. However, the man didn't exactly live like royalty. In fact, he was treated like a freak and dismissed as a savage.

As it turns out, the Filipino slave wasn't really named Prince Giolo. His real name was said to be Jeoly. His journey to England wasn't by choice. He was a victim of circumstance and other people's greed.

Comics Artist Shows Us How Vastly Different Western and Chinese Cultures Are

Hilarious and interesting at the same time. Check out #5!

By

What first comes to mind when you hear about China? Some of us would likely think about the fantastic food, its famous Great Wall, or perhaps some of the not-so nice aspects of the country (such as blatant piracy of products).

Well whether you’ve been there or not, there’s no denying that Chinese culture is indeed vastly different compared with the western. We’ve all seen that in books, movies, and in the news. Or maybe you’ve even personally noticed some differences as you observed your Chinese classmates, co-workers, or neighbors.

One artist on Instagram is currently making waves online for accurately depicting the distinct cultural disparaties between China and the west.

Born and raised in Beijing, Siyu has eventually spent 10 years “traveling, studying and working abroad in the US, UK, and France.” So yes, this artist has seen and experienced what it feels like living in both sides of the world – and this served as the inspiration for an ongoing weekly online comics series called Tiny Eyes.

In a BoredPanda post, Siyu shared:

“I started ‘Tiny Eyes’ comics a year ago in the hope of sharing Chinese culture through everyday life. To me, learning about other cultures has always been a fun experience, and I want to pass this feeling to people who are curious about China.

“In lots of my comics, I compare Chinese culture to western culture. Through comparison, we realize how differently we act in front of the same situation and how we tend to think in a certain way instead of another.

“In the end, every culture is ‘weird’ in its way, but it’s also the weirdness that makes it interesting.”

Check out the comics below along with some captions from the artist:
