An interesting invention: three college engineering students in India created anti-rape underwear.

They are trying to combat the alarming rate of sexual assaults on female tourists.

It's a night gown equipped with GPS and is wired to deliver a shock to the attacker with a jolt of 3800-volts of electricity. It can shock an attacker up to 82 times.

Rimpi Tripathi, an engineering student and co-inventor says, "We wanted to bring in a solution, an instant solution, punishment on the spot, so that it can be proved as a deterrent -- that the person who has tried to attempt rape on a girl should be shocked and should be terrified with that shock"

The creators said they've working to make sure the circuits don't harm the woman wearing the underwear.

They're still working on the prototype and have applied for a patent.
