Nowadays, it seems like there is a smart version of any device, ready to keep track of your various activities. However, some might find that using a smart condom to keep track of your performance during sex might be a step too far.
Dubbed the i.Con and produced by British Condoms is a wearable smart condom ring which includes a nano-chip and several sensors meant to measure and track your penis’ activity and performance during sex through a number of variables.
More specifically, those variables include the girth of your penis as well as the average speed and the total number of thrusts. However, the functions of the new i.Con smart condom also include the number of calories burned, the frequency of your intercourse sessions as well as the average skin temperature.
Once the data gathering session has been finalized, you can use the i.Con mobile app for both Android and iOS to download it using an integrated micro USB port. The app provides you with all the data analytics you might want to know and use to improve your performance. The condom ring needs to be plugged into an outlet or a computer in order to be charged.
According to the developers of the device, the smart condom ring is designed to stay at the base of the penis, where a condom can fasten in place and prevent it from slipping during intense activity. Furthermore, the ring itself is made from a synthetic rubber which contains waterproof carbon fiber unit housing the actual technology.
The developers stated that the condom ring will not affect the sensation for either the wearer of the device or its partner, as it is very lightweight and non-intrusive.
Besides its many benefits in measuring your sexual performance, the i.Con has also been designed to act as an STI indicator. However, this function still requires further medical testing. It comes with a filter for antibodies associated with STIs.
Currently, the i.Con smart condom ring is only available in the UK for $74 as a pre-order. However, it may launch internationally depending on the demand of the product.
