Student invents shoe that lets women electrocute attackers

Sexual assault against women is a big problem in India as hardly a day goes by without a case being reported . To address that problem , an 18 -year-old boy has invented a shoe to help women fight aggressors by electrocuting them .

After witnessing multiple instances of disturbing and life -changing acts of violence against women, Siddharth Mandala , a student from the Telengana area of the country decided he needed to do something about the situation.

He spent years working on the ‘ ElectroShoe ’ , a unique type of anti -sexual assault footwear that electrocutes attackers by inflicting 0 . 1 Ampere of electricity while also alerting police and family members that the wearer is in danger . All the wearer has to do is kick the perpetrator .

“ I invented a patent-pending device called ‘ ElectroShoe ’ . It can electrocute the perpetrator instantly by inflicting 0 . 1 Ampere of electricity, while sending an alert for assistance to cops and family members, ” Mandala told The Better India .

“ To accomplish this , I created a unique circuit board that uses footsteps to charge itself with the help of a concept called the ‘ piezoelectric effect ’ which I learned in my physics class . The more the user walks, the more energy is generated and stored in a rechargeable batter
