Teens Invent Condom That Will Detect STIs

Students from the UK’s Isaac Newton Academy, all of whom involved won $15K and a chance to meet Prince Andrew, came up with the concept to make those who practice sex even more aware and safe to protect themselves.

 

Here’s a condom that will show your partner’s true colors.

Three students took home first prize in the health category at the U.K.’s TeenTech Awards on Tuesday for inventing a condom that changes colors if it comes into contact with a sexually transmitted infection. A layer of molecules in the condom,dubbed the S.T.Eye, attach to bacteria and viruses associated with common STIs and the reaction then causes the condom to emit one of four colors, MTV reported.

The condom can only detect certain strains of infections, according to Buzz60. For example, it turns green if it detects chlamydia and purple for HPV.

More than 100 innovators presented their ideas at the event in London, which aims to uncover “real opportunities” in the current STEM workplace.
