Anyone wishing to stay STI free (let’s face it, don’t we all) can now rejoice, thanks to a bunch of school children.
Despite not being old enough to consent, they’ve created a condom that changes colour when it comes into contact with an STI.
Yes, you did just read that correctly.
It means that your sexual exploits could now end even more prematurely, should the S.T.EYE condom detect infections such as syphilis and chlamydia.
The brainchild (literally) of two 14-year-olds and a 13-year-old, the new rubber could change the way STIs are detected.
Daanyaal Ali, Muaz Nawaz and Chirag Shaw came up with the concept and have scooped the TeenTech award for best health innovation too. Daanyaal even had time to explain what inspired them:
We wanted to make something that make detecting harmful STIs safer than ever before, so that people can take immediate action in the privacy of their own homes without the invasive procedures at the doctors.
Did safe sex just get even safer?
