Smart condom here to ‘track and judge’ your performance

By AGENCIES March 5th, 2017 1 min read

A ‘smart’ condom which will monitor your performance in the bedroom as well as detect sexually transmitted infections (STIs) is being developed.

The i.Con Smart Condom will monitor calories burnt, duration of intercourse and number of thrusts and then relay the information to a smartphone app via Bluetooth.

Using nano-chip and sensors it can also detect the speed of your thrusts and how many different positions you use – then tell you how you stack up to other people from around the world.

Despite the name, the item is not actually a condom.

It’s a ring that will sit over a condom at the base, which you can use over and over again.


“It is extremely comfortable, water resistant and lightweight, you won’t even know it’s there ensuring maximum pleasure and, peace of mind,” according to its manufacturers.

Adam Leverson, lead engineer on the i.Con project, said: “Not only have we innovated the world’s first smart condom ring that’ll measure pretty much every aspect of performance in the bedroom, but now I’m pleased to confirm that it will also have built-in indicators to alert the users to any potential STIs present.”

And if you want to charge it up, just use the micro USB port on the device, which you can plug into your computer or mains.

The i.Con is currently in the final stages of testing before its release later this year.

According to the preorder page, the ring will answer questions such as, what’s my thrust velocity. How fast are my thrusts? How many calories did I that just burn? How many times did I just have sex? What’s the average skin temperature of my… eggplant? What’s my size? How many different positions did I just conquer?
