Recording everything from how many calories are burnt during intercourse, speed and total number of thrusts, frequency of sessions along with total duration, girth measurement and how many different positions used, the reusable ring is literally the gift that keeps on giving.
How many times did I just have sex?
The company boasts the i.Con as "extremely comfortable, water resistant and lightweight", in which wearers will barely notice its there.
The i.Con is not a condom, but a penis ring that records the aforementioned data for couples to analyze. It even helps detect sexually transmitted diseases like Chlamydia and Syphilis.
In short, the i.Con ring promises to answer every burning question you've ever had about your sex session. "With over 96,000 pre-registrations for the product, we know that this is a complete game changer", Aaron Slater, British Condoms spokesperson said in a statement.
The i.Con bills itself as the "World's First Smart Condom". "Ever wondered how you stack up to other people from around the world?".
The "world's first smart condom" is actually a ring, and it is here to judge a guy's sexual performance.
Luckily, there's a new, smart condom that could change lovemaking forever. The device stores data anonymously, but anybody who wants to shout "I JUST HAD SEX" into cyberspace is welcome to share their data and compare their prowess with others.
Among the physical specs of the product, there is the fact that it comes in only one size and has a "band adjustable feature", for the device be wearable for all users.
Did someone say, no sex please we're British?
The ring, which will come with a one-year warranty, will have a Micro-USB charging port to provide six to eight hours of "live" usage (not clear if this means thrust usage or something else).
Anxious about privacy, the data kind? The firm is in the final testing stages and is aiming for a full public released later this year, it said on its website. This product can be pre-ordered since July of past year, and it can be bought at $75 ( £59,00).
