A British company has released the first pictures of a ‘smart condom’ which collects very intimate data about the sex life of anyone brave enough to wear it.
It is also understood that i-Con Smart Condom is like a FitBit for your manhood providing all the stats men need to assess their sexual abilities in bed – as it rates their performances and helps detects STIs.
Data includes duration of intercourse, calories burnt, number and speed of thrusts, girth measurements, and different positions used per week, month or year.
It will also help detect sexually transmitted diseases such as chlamydia and syphilis.
The condom firm said its invention would help men see how they ‘stack up to other people from around the world.’
Adam Leverson, lead engineer for the i.Con Smart Condom, said:
“It’s here and it’s beautiful. We wanted the i.Con to look refined, non-intrusive and lightweight – the finished article is nothing short of any of those things.
“There’s a lot of tech packed into the i.Con and for us to be able to deliver it in such a way that there is absolutely no hindrance to the user was our main goal – and I think we have gone above and beyond with the i.Con to make sure of this.
“I’m just so happy that we can now share the i.Con with the world!”
John Simmons, a spokesperson for British Condoms, added:
“We’re extremely excited to share with the world the first glimpse of the i.Con Smart Condom Ring due to go on sale in the UK in January 2018.
“It’s truly the next step in wearable tech and we believe we have pioneered a product that will not only bring an extra element of fun into the bedroom, but will also help indicate potential STI’s present as well as prevent condom slippage, a leading cause of unplanned pregnancy in the UK.”
It should be noted that the i.Con Smart Condom isn’t actually a condom – instead, the photos reveal it’s a ring-shaped wearable that mimics the style of another popular sex toy to sit at the base of the penis.
The i.Con can be used in conjunction with a real condom.
While there are potential benefits, the smartphone-connected device has sparked concerns that it could be used to spy on a person’s intimate moments.
The firm claims 90,000 people have already pre-ordered the product which will be released later this year at the price of £59.99 ($80.99).
