To overcome stagnation, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is seeking new technologies to condoms, but they did not mention in detail what kind of technology is sought. The Foundation was willing to give an initial investment of 100,000 U.S. dollars, up to 1 million dollars for continued investment.
Foundations founder of Microsoft, said the project is purely for world health. Condoms are the next generation that sought by the foundation, is the condom still help reduce the number of pregnancies, and avert the spread of diseases, including HIV / AIDS.
On the other hand, condoms should also be designed to provide sexual pleasure for men or women who wear them, and can reduce the cost of production.
For those of you who have an idea about the new technology in the condom, it could send a proposal to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
