After the Ugly Meter which seems to be nothing more than a little frivolity there is the possibility that scientists will hit the STD test jackpot so to speak. It is being reported that in the not too distant future STD testing can be done at home or with the help of your trusty mobile phone. The test will be as simple as providing a little urine sample on a computer chip and placing it into your phone and waiting for the phone to spit out the results.
Not all experts are of the belief that this technology is imminent in the consumer-ready sense. However, it seems that it is not something that is outside the realm of possibility. The experts have developed simple test kits for HIV. So, the future is nigh, so to speak.
However, the technology raises some interesting nocturnal entertainment possibilities, don't you think? Going out on the turps on a Friday and Saturday night and entering the one-night stand lottery need not result in a recurring case of STD. The reality will be that right next to the condoms in the wallet or purse will be the STD computer chips. It would be pretty funny to be a fly on the wall for that conversation. "So, I am really looking forward to getting down and dirty with you, but before we do would you mind if I watched you pee on this computer chip?" Sort of crushes the moment, doesn't it?
It is a good idea. Anything that keeps our young, and perhaps old, people healthy is a worthwhile cause. Yet, it is still one of those things that you find yourself shaking your head at, like will it still work once the beer goggles are on?
