Is this the future?
As a woman, we’re pretty sure you’ll have experienced the momentary terror of realising that your tampon hasn’t quite done its job probably, and you’ve been left with an unfortunate stain. It happens to all of us, and it’s embarrassing (despite the fact that it’s very normal and shouldn’t be). Still, this new invention could just stop it from ever happening again.
We’ve often wondered why no-one has taken the time to create something a little more period-friendly. I mean, it’s 2016 – do we really have to be doing things the old school way, still? Well, actually, maybe not. Cue the bluetooth tampon – an invention which is probably a long time coming.
my.Flow – a new startup created by 29 year-old Amanda Field – has created the tampon with Bluetooth connectivity. It lets you know when the tampon is completely saturated and needs to be changed, so no more leaks or embarrassing moments.
And don’t worry about the idea of putting technology up your private parts – the tampon comes with an extra long string that connects to a Bluetooth module on your waist. Sounds a little odd, but we’re willing to give it the benefit of the doubt.
It won’t launch until 2017, so we can stay hopeful that the shame that exists around menstruation will have all but disappeared by then. But probably not, in which case this might just make your life that little bit easier. And we’re all about that.
