Condoms are about to get upgrade if Bill Gates has his way. He is offering $100,000 to anyone who can make a condom less of a hassle to wear.

The money is being offered by the Gates Foundation by way of the Grand Challenges in Global Health Program, and is up for grabs by “anyone – students, scientists or entrepreneurs” who can improve the age-old second-skin tech. And if you needed any clever ideas to get you started, the Gates foundation “has you covered” so to speak:

Additional concepts that might increase [condom usage] uptake include attributes that increase ease-of-use for male and female condoms, for example better packaging or designs that are easier to properly apply. In addition, attributes that address and overcome cultural barriers are also desired.

Some one is going to come up with a futuristic i-robot age condom for those six figures.
