These Hyderabad Men Invented A Smart Bangle To Protect Women From Attackers

This smart bangle will send out shock waves to attackers, notify some assigned contacts, and call the nearest police stations

India has a high rate of crime against women, and the situation is getting worse as we speak. A recent study revealed that the #MeToo Revolution and the case of Nirbhaya made little impact on society as the gendered crime rate shows no sign of decreasing. While the number of the reported case increases, not many of these crimes are put through a proper legal procedure.

This time might call for the intervention of technology. While it is sad that we have to come to such extreme measures so that female citizens might feel safer, they are necessary. This Indian man thought the same, which is why he invented a smart bangle that women can wear to protect themselves.

Two Hyderabad men invented a smart bangle that women can wear to protect themselves

According to a report from ANI, 23-year-old Gadi Harish lives in Hyderabad, and with Sai Teja, a close friend, they made this smart bangle that can serve as a weapon the wearers can use against attackers. They called it a ‘Self-security bangles for women.’

Many people will mistake the device as an embellished gold bangle at first sight, but actually, it has a switch that when turned on, can send out shock waves. With this device on, all users have to do is to tilt their hand and it will do the rest, including shocking her attacker, informing some assigned contacts, and calling the nearest police stations. This is how the bangle looks like:

This accessory is still at the prototype stage, and for now, it is still too large. There are doubts and questions about if the device may hurt the wearer in the process. Just hours after the project was made known, Twitter was bombarded with questions about the new technology.

 

According to Harish, this piece of equipment is an effort to protect women from gender crimes. The underlying principle is clear, but we do not know anything more about how the users target the attacker. The device’s two makers said that there had not been any tool like this on the market.

While crimes against women are still rampant, these two young men's idea of a device that can help women fight back the attackers is laudable. We may have to wait and see if this idea can make it to reality.
