Potential Failure of Rape Preventing Underwear Crowdfunding

Here’s another good crowdfunding idea that may be in meltdown. In March 2016 AR Wear reported “the transition from prototype to manufacturing process is presenting challenges in more areas than we had imagined.”

So, its more than 2,000 backers who donated almost $55,000 may never see AR’s  women’s underwear that is advertised toprotect against sexual assault.

Apparently, “AR Wear, which has devised underwear constructed with fabric resistant to pulling and cutting, and an internal skeleton to prevent removal by anyone other than the wearer.” …while at the same time being discreet if not attractive. There’s been radio silence since.

Not sure why this company just received press coverage yesterday??
