It’s a brave new world.
Especially when 13 and 14-year-old kids are winning the TeenTech Awards by inventing condoms that detect STIs.
We don’t know about you, but our science fair projects were a lot less, well, ahead of their time.
In fact, these young (young) men aren’t just smart, they’re witty too – they’ve named the condom the S.T. EYE, and they believe in the power of wrapping it up.
According to MailOnline, “the condom might glow green for chlamydia, yellow for herpes, purple in the presence of the human papillomavirus which causes genital warts, and blue for syphilis.”
Talk about mood (killing) lighting.
One thing’s for sure though, as awkward as this might be at the time, it’s way better than finding out later that someone wasn’t exactly telling the truth about their history – or even worse, they’re completely unaware.
The condom was awarded first prize in the TeenTech Health Category, so you can probably expect big things in the future.
