Innovation in the Pharmaceutical filed have always been a boon to the society but that's not enough, we need products/inventions that can guarantee protection, safety or make day to day task simple. In the past few years the violence against women has increased so to provide a helping hand, a 20 years old third year engineering student; Nandan Shah invented a rape prevention device. It is one of the products that he has filed patent for along with three others i.e. a foldable keyboard, smart locking device and a mass storage device.
The folding keyboard is 1/8th the size of a normal keyboard and has been made on a cardboard that one can carry in their pocket. The rape prevention device, invented by Shah and his friend Sanjay Bathavar, is a wrist band with sensors which will be activated on the pulse rate if a girl is in danger and can thwart the attacker using chemicals.
The smart-locking system which works on mechanical passwords by Shah and his friend Vaibhav Patel has been developed with die cast keys costing just Rs 200 (in the market the die casting alone costs around 50,000 to 60,000 Rs). He made it in his lab at home and calls it NanLab, where all his inventions have been made.
