In my home area I’m not in the slightest bit concerned about someone picking through my pockets. However, no one in a large and strange city doesn’t realize the risk you run when you let on that you’re a tourist. Even if you live in a city all of the time, as soon as you get into a crowded area you’re abundantly aware of how easy it’d be for someone to swipe your wallet and the thief to disappear into the crowd. Thankfully one person created a kit to attempt to keep pickpockets from being successful.
You just fit a small battery-operated kit into the garment. After you’ve gotten it all set up in your jeans and flipped the on switch, anyone that tries to remove your wallet will receive a 220-volt shock. To protect you from getting the same shock there is a rubber coating that, Syam Chaurasia, slipped into the pockets. This isn’t currently up for sale just yet, but the creator has hopes that he could connect with a company to help him sell these.
