A 14-year-old Indonesia teen invented the shoes last year.
A teenager in Indonesia invented anti-sexual-harassment shoes, and he won himself a gold medal in an international exhibition in the process.
Putting a battery and circuit inside, the 14-year-old invented the shoes last year. When a button is pressed, the front of the shoes generate 450-volts of electricity to help women fend off attackers, according to reports. The young man's invention earned him the 2013 International Exhibit of Young Inventors gold medal.
The boy said seeing so many cases of sexual assault against women inspired the idea.
