A condom that becomes green if the wearer has chlamydia - It sounds like a good idea.
So did the jury of Teen Tech believe too, which resulted in that four school students won the main prize in the health technology concept, with condoms that change color according to what kind of venereal disease the wearer has.
The winners are from the Isaac Newton Academy in Illford. The condoms are still at the idea stage, but the students hope to develop the idea further.
- We wanted to create something that makes it safer than ever to detect STDs, so people can do something about it without the invasive procedures at the doctor, said one of the students, adding that it will also help to ensure that it will be easy to be responsible.
The invention is named S.T.EYE, after the English word for sexually transmitted disease, Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI). The other ideas that came to the finals, are the hairpin which automatically changes color depending on what you wear and an app that calculates the value in money of chores, to help young people to advocate for higher allowance.
The prize is £1000. Teen Tech Awards was founded in 2008 by Maggie Phiblin to promote science, engineering and technology among teenagers.
