If vibrators aren’t enough to get you in the mood, and you’re one of those people who find that putting on a condom makes sex less sensational, that might not be the issue anymore as two researchers from Georgia Tech have teamed up to spearhead a new approach to safe sex – digital condoms that literally shock you!

Vice reports that the project is called ‘Electric Eel’, and it’s an open source digital condom wired with electrodes, and hooked up to a micro-controller. Once charged, the condom emits low levels of electrical impulses in an attempt to match the feelings of condom-less sex and increase stimulation.

The researchers hope new innovations in condom technology will help mitigate the epidemic of young people who eschew condoms due to the fact that they can dull sensation.
