‘A condom that changes colour when it comes into contact with sexually transmitted infections has been invented by a group of school children.'

‘A condom that changes colour when it comes into contact with sexually transmitted infections has been invented by a group of school children,’ The Independent has reported.

Daanyaal Ali, 14, Muaz Nawaz, 13 and Chirag Shah, 14, pupils at Isaac Newton Academy in Ilford, Essex are the ones who came up with this invention, aptly termed ‘S.T.EYE.’

‘We created the S.T.EYE as a new way for STI detection to help the future of the next generation. We wanted to make something that make detecting harmful STIs 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 told The Independent.

The 'S.T.EYE' is said to have a built-in indicator to detect infections such as chlamydia and syphilis, turning a different colour depending on the strain of bacteria present.

The trio will travel to Buckingham Palace, where they'll receive a cash prize of £1 000 for winning the TeenTech Awards for their invention.
