Don’t Know if Your Partner Has An STD? There’s a Condom for That.


Everything’s smart these days. Phones, water, cars. Humans? Not so much. Thank God these new “glowing” smart condoms are here to save the day.

Apparently, these condoms change colors when they come into contact with someone who has an STD.

A group of students taking part in the TeenTech awards, came up with the idea as a way to combat soaring infection rates.

How does it work? Via Daily Mail

Called the S.T.EYE, the condom concept includes a layer impregnated with molecules that attach to the bacteria and viruses associated with the most common sexually transmitted infections (STIs).


In a statement, Daanyaal Ali, 14, who is a part of the team, says they did it to help the future generation.

‘We created the S.T.EYE as a new way for STI detection to help the future of the next generation.

‘We wanted to create something that makes 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.

‘We’ve made sure we’re able to give peace of mind to users and make sure people can be even more responsible than ever before.’

So exactly what colors will the condoms turn when they’ve run into some trouble? According the creators,the condom might glow green for chlamydia, yellow for herpes, purple in the for HPV and blue for syphilis.

WOW! This is a hell of an idea. Why didn’t somebody think of this sooner?
Muaz Nawaz and Chirag Shah, are the other students who helped create the concept. All three of the students are from London, and attend Isaac Newton Academy.
And of course, the invention won first prize.
(The condoms are still very much a concept and are not yet ready for production/sell)
