[Ed. – How did we ever manage without it?]
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.
The device is called the i.Con and can detect STIs as well as sending data about a sex session straight to the wearer’s smartphone.
British Condoms said its ‘revolutionary wearable tech for the bedroom’ measures the number of calories burned during intercourse, the speed of a man’s thrusts, how long he lasts and even what positions are used.
The condom firm said its invention would help men see how they ‘stack up to other people from around the world’.
However, it’s far from clear whether lovers will be happy with the idea of letting a condom spy on their most private moments.
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.
