A group of school teenagers have invented a revolutionary condom that changes colour when it comes into contact with sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
The teenagers –Daanyaal Ali, 14, Muaz Nawaz, 13 and Chirag Shah, 14, from the Isaac Newton Academy in Ilford, Essex, created the ‘S.T.EYE’ condom to “make detecting harmful STIs safer than ever before.”
The revolutionary condom comes with a built-in indicator that transforms the condom into a different colour every time it comes into contact with a different strain of bacteria.
S.T.EYE can detect infections, including chlamydia and syphilis.
“We created the S.T.EYE as a new way for STI detection to help the future of the next generation,” said Ali, reported The Independent.
“We wanted to make something that makes 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.
