Indian man invents shoes that shoot blank rounds for women’s safety kit

  • An Indian man has created an innovative safety kit to help women feel safer while walking around the streets in India.
  • Shyam Chaurasia from the state of Uttar Pradesh in India has been showcasing his inventions found in several everyday accessories such as earrings and handbags to help keep women safe since 2020.
  • Chaurasia’s safety kit, which is not yet ready for public release, contains a handbag and a pair of heels that can fire blank rounds to scare off any attackers and help alert bystanders.
  • The Indian innovator has also invented a pair of earrings with a GPS tracker inside that can make emergency calls to the authorities, as well as a "lipstick gun" that can be connected to its user's smartphone via Bluetooth.
  • “In case the woman is in trouble or anyone tries anything and she is not able to use a mobile phone, she can press a button on the lipstick gun, which is linked to Bluetooth and it will immediately make a call to the 112 emergency number,” he told the South China Morning Post in January 2020.
  • As of July, the National Commission for Women reportedly received more than 17,000 complaints of crime against women in India.
