Anti-Molestation Jacket

Kumar Roshan and Shilpi Vaish, two students at the National Institute of Fashion Technology in India have developed a prototype for a jacket that protects women from attacks by shocking the offender. The metal circuitry is cleverly hidden as part of the decorative embroidery. There's a button on the waistband that will release a 100 volt shock onto to the unwanted toucher-feeler when pressed. Heavy insulation protects the wearer from the shocking mechanism.
It's not yet commercially available but the students are working on getting a patent. Maybe they'll make a pants version too, perfect for crowded subways.
