A start-up company in New York has come up with a new line up underwear that can be locked and is rip proof and is currently being marketed online as an 'antirape' wear.

Developed by AR Wear, the underwear is actually a pair of form-fitting shorts that come with a combination lock on the waist which prevents anyone else from removing it without the consent of the owner. It also as a 'protective skeletal structure' which makes it stretch, rip or cut proof.

The product has been developed on the idea that resisting rape reduces the risk of rape without increasing the risk of violence. The company has launched an online crowdfunding campaign on IndieGogo.com through which it hopes to raise around $50,000 and has so far managed to collect $27,400.

A promotional video of the product states that the main aim behind the development was to make women feel safer when out on a date or late night clubbing. "We want to make a product that will make women and girls feel safer when out on a first date or a night of clubbing, taking an evening run, travelling in another country or in other potentially risky situations", the video said.
