Futuristic Viagra-Dispensing condoms are coming soon, no pun intended.

After receiving a $100,000 grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates' Foundation, scientists at the University of Wollongong in Australia have created a new self-lubricating, biodegradable, Viagra-dispensing condom that has a skin-like feel.

The condom is made from hydrogel, "a very flexible and super strong material," that feels like you aren't wearing anything.

Our original idea was just to try to prove that an original material could replace latex. We had an idea that these new materials would have the same properties as rubber with a nicer feel, but we weren't sure if they had the right properties for a condom.”

Bill Gates tasked scientists with creating "the next generation" of condoms. Well, the scientists down under may have created the next generation of condoms that can reduce pregnancy, prevent HIV or other STIs and feel good at the same time.
