A group of school going kids in U.K have invented a revolutionary new condom that changes its colour when it comes in contact with harmful sexual transmitted diseases (STD) such as chlamydia and syphilis.

The condom called, ‘S.T.EYE’ condom would change color as soon as it finds the presence of some bacteria and it can help to warn the couples to take quick and immediate step. Additionally it would give the couple the freedom to take actions in the privacy of their homes.

The condom comes with a built-in indicator that changes the contraceptive into a different color whenever it finds an STD infected bacteria.

The students who invented this condom won the prestigious TeenTech award for best health innovation. Daanyal Ali, Muaz Nawaz and Chirag Shah, from Isaac Newton Academy in Ilford, Essex have been behind the innovation. This color changing condom has a built-in indicator that detects STDs and changes color on the basis if the strain of the infection.

“We wanted to make something that makes detecting harmful STDs 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 Daanyaal Ali, one of the inventors said.

The teenagers also won a prize of 1,000 pounds ($1,750) and a visit to Buckingham Palace for their life-saving innovation. The innovation will impact millions of couples who practice safe sex and will only make it safer.

This revolutionary product made to make people more sexually aware is a result of the above mentioned TeenTech awards that encourages young investors to innovate. They have somehow succeeded to make something that will promote sexual awareness among the young generation.
