(Scroll down for video) Efforts to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) just got a major boost as children invented condoms, which can change colors when coming into contact with STDs.
The condoms named S.T.EYE has a built-in sensor that can detect infections such as chlamydia and syphilis, turning a different color depending on the strain of bacteria.
Surprisingly, the investors of the condoms are children in the United Kingdom.
14-year-old Daanyaal Ali, 13-year-old Muaz Nawaz, and 14-year-old Chirag Shah attend the Isaac Newton Academy in Ilford, Essex.
Ali said that they created the S.T.EYE as a new way to detect sexually transmitted diseases and help the future of the next generation.
The three teens won the first prize at the TeenTech Awards. They have also been approached by several condom companies.
