We live in a society where promiscuous teens are more open about their sexual preferences and having sex. There are three teens who have set out to make the “sexual” network much safer. It may become a bit awkward, however having a condom that changes color when a sexually transmitted disease is present is not a bad idea. The children behind this invention are Daanyaal Ali age 14, Muaz Nawaz age 13, and Chirag Shah age 14. All three boys attend Isaac Newton Academy located in Ilford, Essex. The three banded together to work on developing a safer way for STDs to be detected.
What Do the Color Changing Condemns Detect?
To detect syphilis and chlamydia, the condom has an indicator that is built in. Depending on the type of infections, the condom will turn different colors. With a product like this, having awkward phone calls or having to visit the doctor for testing are soon going to be a thing of the past. For those who are out their “sewing their oats” so to speak, this product can add some peace of mind. Now, people will have the opportunity to begin acting immediately right in the comfort of their own home.
This innovation is due in large part to the Teen Tech Awards. This program is designed to offer encouragement to young inventors. The group has been able to succeed in creating casual encounters that are for the next generation.
A Touchy Subject
STDs are a very sensitive topic, even for adults. Many people find it difficult to discuss. When three friends came together, they knew they are on to something big. The condom is called “S.T.EYE”. When the three boys discovered that there was a problem in the UK for disease transmittal through sex, they knew they had to get busy and begin creating something. Thus the “S.T. EYE” was born.
With this condom, it could in theory detect if there is an infection in the partner or the wearer. Sometimes, people feel embarrassed and can’t talk about the subject at all. These condoms will ensure that you can still maintain a high level of privacy.
The virus or bacteria comes in contact with antibodies that are going to point out issues when the condom changes color. Depending on the STI, the condom will change colors so you can know what you are looking for. Reaction times will vary.
The W.H.O. (World Health Organization) has stated that almost one million people will acquire a sexually transmitted infection. In the UK, the most common STD is chlamydia and it can be easily transmitted during sex.
Even though the condoms are still in the early stages of development, the boys have been approached by a manufacturer of condoms that can help turn this dream into a sharp reality.
