Condom Invented That Will Change Color When It Comes In Contact With An STI

Sex just is about to get even safer, thanks to a group of middle school students in the UK.

Daanyaal Ali, 14, and Chirag Shah, 13, of Isaac Newton Academy in Essex have invented a concept for a condom that detects potential STDs.

The condom is called the “S.T.EYE.” Though it is still in the concept stages, the idea is that it will change color whenever it comes into contact with an STI, with different colors representing different infections. The condom turns green to indicate chlamydia, yellow to signify herpes, purple in the presence of HPV, and blue for syphilis.

“We wanted to make something that makes detecting harmful STIs safer than ever before,” Ali told The Independent, “so that people can take immediate action in the privacy of their own homes without the invasive procedures at the doctors.”

As a result of their work, the kids were just awarded the TeenTech award for innovation, for which they received £1,000 and a trip to Buckingham Palace.

    This story has been all over my time line today. Some even made jokes about some people still going ahead to fuck after the STI discovery. Good news and a great step in controlling STI.

    Wait. Does this change when the wearer has an STI or only when it comes in contact with vaginal fluids or the anal lining???? Because it does sound one sided-ish

    Ugh.. It’s still being developed? I’ve seen this idea on twitter many years back with #whyarentwefundingthis. It makes sense sha… It’d need to be vigorously tested to ensure it doesn’t cause reactions in either parties.

      ‘Vigorously tested’, huh? I’m guessing you’d like to be one of the test subjects, yes?

    And if it detects all the STIs there can be, are you gonna have a rainbow condom as a result??? Wouldn’t it be rather cute…??
