Wish there were a sure way to know if someone had a s_exually transmitted disease? Now you can catch people red-handed, or uh, red-p_enised. Three British teens proposed an idea that will rock the world of safe s_ex- condoms that change colors when exposed to various STDs! Depending on what venereal disease you had, the condom could turn purple, yellow, or green. This new condom could potentially reduce the amount of people getting s_exually transmitted infections! This is the new condom that changes colors when exposed to STDs.
Do you want condoms to alert you to your partner’s diseases? Let us know in the comments!
Concept. According to the Washington Post, “a concept for a smart condom that would alter its luminescent hue when exposed to common STDs. There would be antibodies on the condom that would interact with the antigens of STDs, causing the condom to change colors depending on the disease.”
The inventors. Daanyaal Ali, 14, Muaz Nawaz, 13, and Chirag Shah, 14, named their concept the “S.T. EYE.” So you can see what you’re getting into! They won a $1500 prize for their project.
Chlamydia. Chlamydia is the most common s_exually transmitted infection. If your partner had this, it would turn the condom a nasty green. Yikes!
Herpes. The herp turns the condom yellow. Though it’s unclear if it would detect if your partner didn’t have an outbreak. Or if you didn’t have symptoms.
Syphilis. Code blue! Is not something you want to see on your manhood. Blue would be the color for Syphilis. So if it turns this color, see a doctor immediately.
