Telangana State Innovation Cell has launched the ‘Intinta Innovator’ program to encourage innovation among people from all walks of life. As part of this program, students from different districts showcased their inventions at an event held on August 15. One of the innovators, S Pooja, a third-year polytechnic student from Manakondur, Karimnagar district, caught everyone’s attention with her creation.
Pooja designed a woman safety hair rubber band to address the concerns of women and girls who feel unsafe while going out for shopping, college, or work due to stalkers and suspicious individuals. In an interview with The Hans India, Pooja explained how her invention works. The woman safety hair rubber band is attached to braided hair. If a woman or girl finds herself in trouble with suspicious people, she can simply press the hair rubber band and a police horn will sound, scaring away the stalkers. If the harassers persist, pressing the hair rubber band again will send a message to the nearest She Team office saying ‘I’m in danger, save me,’ along with the sender’s live location. The She Team police will then come to the rescue and provide security.
The woman safety hair rubber band consists of a transmitter and two buttons, according to Pooja. This innovative solution empowers women to protect themselves from stalkers and suspicious individuals, ensuring their safety and peace of mind.
