London Students Create ‘Smart’ Condoms That Glow In the Dark To Indicate If a Person Has a STD


Ilford, United Kingdom – Three students from London’s Issac Newton Academy are helping to create a cleaner sexual environment.

Muaz Nawaz, Daanyaal Ali and Chirag Shah are creating what will be known as the “smart” condom called the “S.T.EYE,” The Independent reports.

This condom could possibly revolutionize how people can detect if they have a sexually transmitted disease without even getting tested.

“We wanted to make something that make detecting harmful STI’s (sexually transmitted infections) 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,” Daanyaal Ali told The Independent.

The condoms glow a different color in the dark if an STD is detected. Reports show that the condom uses a built-in-indicator that changes color when a bacteria or infection is detected. 
  • Green may indicate chlamydia
  • Yellow for herpes
  • Purple for human papillomavirus
  • Blue for syphilis


This condom creation earned the teens the top innovation prize at the Teen Tech Awards. They also received money and a trip to Buckingham Palace.

According to reports, the condom is not available yet, it is just a concept for now.

The Centers for Disease and Control and Prevention says ways to help prevent STD's are through condoms, reducing number of sex partners, abstinence, mutual monogamy and vaccination.
