Called 'S.T.EYE,' this condom could very well prevent the spread of sexually transmitted diseases. And it was made by a group of 13 and 14-year-old students. Seriously, kids today are getting smarter!
The teenagers developed a smart condom that glows in different colors if it detects a sexually transmitted infection.
Muaz Nawaz, Daanyaal Ali, and Chirag Shah, are from London's Isaac Newton Academy. They wanted to make detecting harmful STIs easier. Their invention nabbed the top health innovation prize at the TeenTech Awards.
The condom uses a built-in indicator that will change its color depending on the bacteria or infection it detects. Green is for chlamydia, yellow is for herpes, and purple for human papillomavirus, and blue for syphilis.
“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,” 14-year-old Ali said. “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.”
