World first smart condom it can track your sexual performance?


If you ever looked at your wearable gadget and wished it would tell you how good you are at sex, then we have some news for you.

The i.Con Smart Condom, from British Condoms, markets itself as the “world’s first smart condom”. What makes the i.Con different from the garden variety condom you can buy at the drugstore? It is actually a ‘smart’ ring that fits over a regular dumb condom and tracks your sexual activity. It can also identify certain sexually transmitted diseases like chlamydia and syphilis, the maker claims.

The ring, is will be available on the British Condoms website for £59.99 (about Rs 5000) however the release date is unknown. The website says that the device is not yet accessible that they “are in the final stages of testing i.Con” and “aiming for all-purpose public release in 2017.” The device is not available in India but can be shipped from the UK.

The i.Con ring will pair with an app on your smartphone that’ll let you view your sexual presentation stats. What kind of stats? The website says the ring will tell answer the following questions:

Calories burnt during sexual interaction: Like a FitBit does when you go for a run

Total number of thrusts: Like the step counter on your smartwatch

Happening of sessions: Basically how many times you are having sex

Total duration of session: Pretty self explanatory

Girth measurement: ……

Speed of thrusts and average speed of thrusts: Like some kind of IPL scoreboard

Different positions used (currently BETA testing – will have more info in a release coming soon): Like a personal Kamasutra tutor

Average skin temperature: Like a thermometer, but gross

The device also intends to gamify your sexual movement by ranking you against the world. That should be great for your self-esteem.

The ring, comes with a one-year warranty, will have a Micro-USB charging port to provide six to eight hours of “live” usage (the website doesn’t clarify what “live” exactly means). It will work with a mixture of “nano-chip and sensors,” and pair with your device via Bluetooth.

CNET quoted British Condoms saying that the i.Con will be available in one size with a “band adjustment feature.”

If you worried about sharing data about your sexual activity to an app, British Condoms says “all data will be kept unidentified, but users will have the option to share their recent data with friends, or, indeed the world.”
