Three British schoolboys may have altered the future by inventing a condom that changes color when it comes into contact with sexually transmitted infections. The boys, Daanyaal Ali, 14, Muaz Nawaz, 13 and Chirag Shah, 14, set out to “make detecting harmful STIs safer than ever before.” The result is a condom is called the S.T. EYE and changes into different colors depending on what strain of bacteria it detects, it can sense chlamydia and syphilis among others. Daanyall told The Independent, “We created the S.T. EYE as a new way for STI detection to help the future of the next generation … so people can take immediate action in the privacy of their own homes without the invasive procedures at the doctors.” The three teens were awarded a TeenTech award for their innovative invention, but their real pleasure, one said, is in giving “peace of mind to users by [ensuring] people can be even more responsible than ever before.”
