The ever-evolving technology has introduced a variety of wearables that help you organize and enjoy your daily life. But here comes a unique wearable that enters your bedroom and can help you see how you perform in your private moments in bed.
A British firm has rolled out first pictures of a “smart condom” that gathers data about the sex life of anyone who is dare enough to wear it. First of its kind of smart condom device, known as i.Con, sends data about a sex session straight to the wearer’s smartphone and detects sexually transmitted diseases.
The i.Con is made by British Condoms who believe that their “revolutionary wearable tech for the bedroom” would help men see how they “stack up to other people from around the world.” Moreover, the smart condom can measure the number of calories burned during intercourse, how long it lasts and speed.
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. It is waterproof and features a band that’s “extraordinarily flexible to ensure maximum comfort”
John Simmons, a spokesperson for British Condoms, said:
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.
What is i.Con?
Well, the i.Con is not really an actual condom but a ring that will sit over a condom at the base, which you can use over and over again. The British Condoms claims the product is extremely comfortable, water resistant and lightweight. It can be used with any condom you wish to use in conjunction with the i.Con.
The i.Con uses a Nano-chip and sensors to record a number of different variables during your sessions. Once the session gets completed, you’ll then be able to use the i.Con app to download your recent data which is paired to the device using Bluetooth technology.
Once you have downloaded your data, the i.Con will automatically clear its memory making way for your next session. It’s extremely simple to use.
Bizarrely, it even lights up to provide illumination. The condom company claimed 900,000 people have already written to express interest in the gadget.
Smart sex toys are hugely controversial, because of the risk that the intimate data they gather could be access by horny hackers and hi-tech heavy breathers.
However, it is far from certain if lovers will be happy with the idea of letting a condom spy on their most private moments.
