Adhesive detects sexual abuse and sends alert for contacts
Intrepid adhesive, created by researcher Manisha Mohan of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology - MIT, offers a new way to report and even prevent sexual abuse. The proposal is that the patch be put on some intimate item, notifying emergency services and victim contact when the clothing is pulled out by force.
Intrepid is used in conjunction with an application, powered by Bluetooth. In the app, five known numbers of the person must be registered, which will be contacted in the event of an emergency, that is, when the sticker is stripped together with the clothing. Novelty acts in two different ways, one of them being the "active mode", for situations in which the person is unable to fight, such as children or the elderly, for example.
Thus, at the smallest sign of an attempt to withdraw of the clothing, a message is sent to the person's cell phone, confirming whether the act is consensual or not. Thereafter, a 30-second countdown begins for a response. to sound and messages are triggered to the registered contacts, containing the location. In parallel, the voice recorder of the cellphone is triggered and transmits the audio of the environment in the form of a connection.
The second way of action is to

Also tested were 70 volunteers, analyzing the functionality and comfort of the item, which is easily fixed and removed from the clothes and does not spoil if it is forgotten when it is time to put on the laundry.

Living a life without regrets is not human. It is the nature of those who breathe, feel, and have memory, look back and realize that they have yes, something, or several small and gigantic things that they could or should not have done. nothing happens by chance, or at random, it is inaccurate to say what the results or consequences of these memories will be.
