How hasn't someone thought of this before? A trio of genius teens from a London academy just invented glow in the dark condoms that change colors when used with someone who has a sexually transmitted disease.

At the TeenTech awards, students Musaz Nawaz, Daanyaal Ali and Chirag Shah took top prize in the Health category for their smart condoms, called the S.T.EYE, which glow different colors when they came into contact with bacteria and viruses that cause sexually transmitted infections. Their condom would glow green for chlamydia, yellow for herpes, purple for HPV and blue for syphilis. Guess this is one time when a glowstick could end a party, not make them more fun!

"We wanted to make something that made detecting harmful STIs safer than ever before, so that people can take immediate action in the privacy of their own homes without the often-scary procedures."

We think this is a great idea, but these condoms are still in concept phase, so make sure to use regular protection in the meantime!
