Finally, A 'Smart Condom' That Will Count Calories Burned During Sex

Finally, A 'Smart Condom' That Will Count Calories Burned During Sex

The ring, first announced last July, is now available for preorder on British Condoms for £59.99 (about $74, AU$97) with an unknown release date.

A feature that is still undergoing testing records different positions that you use, although we cannot exactly understand how it can do that. Also, the product is "extremely comfortable, water resistant and lightweight". The manufacturers say the device can measure speed, total number, and velocity of "thrusts", as well as frequency and duration of your lurve-making sessions. The device - a little ring that fits snugly around a penis - measures the wearer's thrust speed, tracks their position, determines girth, and measures the temperature of their dong, to name a few tricks.

The i.Con also presents some functions that are now in Beta testing like recording different positions practiced during the sex session, the average skin temperature of the user and the registered girth.

The i.Con is a wonderful product for men who have always been wondering how they stack up to other men.

It will also help detect sexually transmitted diseases such as Chlamydia and Syphilis.

The i.Con is not an actual condom, the inventors have said. The i.Con will have a micro-USB charging port, and it will provide over 6 hours of "live usage".

"We knew we were on the cusp of creating something special with i.Con and bringing a new meaning to 'wearable tech, ' but being advocates of safe sex, we wanted something more and the addition of an STI indicator has certainly done that".

Anxious about privacy, the data kind?

Users can then use an i.Con app that pairs with their phone via bluetooth technology to download information about their session and even share it with partners or friends. British Condoms said they have been developing the unique product since 2016.

This smart condom initiative might actually be useful, but it requires thorough testing before being released on the markets so that all users can be assured of its accuracy.

Over 90,000 people have pre-ordered the product at a cost of 59.99 euros, which will be released later this year.
