Women safety has become one of the major concerns of our nation. This 17 year-old Indian boy has invented an ElectroShoe that can save women from getting raped. Women can use this shoe to electrocute attackers.
Siddharth has a dream to become an entrepreneur and with the help of the concepts of Physics that have been taught in school, and some additional programming, he has invented this unique gift for women.
Siddharth’s ElectroShoe is capable of giving a shock of 0.1 amp electricity to the attacker. Not just this, but it also sends alerts to the police as well as the family of the women using this shoe.
Explaining the concept of the shoe, Siddharth said,
The shoe was created using a unique circuit board that uses footsteps to charge itself with the help of a concept called the “piezoelectric effect”. The more the user walks, the more energy is generated and stored in a rechargeable battery.
After applying for the patent of the product, Siddharth has now decided to try his invention in the real market,
After the patent is obtained, I plan to approach start-up incubators in the city to get a better understanding of how my product will fare in the real market and what changes I have to make to the prototype. I need to focus on the designing of the product in order to make it appealing in a market space.
This brilliant idea came to Siddharth’s mind after the Nirbhaya incident that took place in Delhi in 2012. He further said,
All a woman needs to do is to ensure that the battery is sufficiently charged. When the shoe makes contact with an attacker’s body, the attacker will be electrocuted.
