Have you ever wondered how good your performance in bed was? Have you ever felt like your partner keeps lying to you about how good or bad you performance was? Well, scientists in Britain have come up with a smart condom to help answer all those questions.
The i-Con Smart Condom from British Condoms is the ”world’s first smart condom” which is actually a ”smart” ring that fits over a standard condom and tracks your sexual activity/performance.
Adam Leverson, lead engineer on the i.Con project said:
”Not only have we innovated the world’s first smart condom ring – that’ll measure pretty much every aspect of performance in the bedroom – but now I’m pleased to confirm that it will also have built-in indicators to alert the users to any potential STIs present.”
The smart ring will be able to detect diseases like chlamydia and syphilis.
Aaron Slater, a spokesperson for British Condoms, added:
”We knew we were on the cusp of creating something special with i.Con, and bringing a new meaning to wearable tech.”
”Being advocates of safe sex, we wanted something more, and the addition of an STI indicator has certainly done that.. we know that this is a complete game-changer.”
The smart ring will have a Micro-USB charging port to provide six to eight hours of usage and will be paired with an app on your smartphone which will let you view your sexual performance stats.
The company’s preorder page website says the ring will provide such stats as:
- What’s my thrust velocity?
- How fast are my thrusts?
- How many calories were burned during a particular session?
- How many times did I just have sex?
- What is the total duration of a particular session?
- What’s the average skin temperature?
- What’s my girth measurement?
- How many different positions were used during a particular session?
To further increase self-esteem or in some cases, ruin it, the device also intends to gamify your sexual activity by ranking you against the world.
All information will, however, be kept anonymous but users have the option of sharing their recent data with friends.
So far, over 90,000 people have already pre-ordered the product which will be released later this year. It is priced at £59.99 ($74, Ksh 7,500) and comes with a one-year warranty.
