Condom Applicator Wins Most Beautiful Award
A very clever little device that takes a few aspects of this product’s problematic use experience and fixes it. Its something almost every man has a problem with but never really speaks about. Remember your very first time? Too painfully I bet!
Dutch designer Jurgen Bey voted this device “Most Beautiful” at the Design Indaba conference last week. It was invented by Willem van Rensburg and designed by industrial designer Roelf Mulder of South Africa’s XYZ Design.
Hmm they got the orientation problem of this product sorted out with the wrapper graphic, but what about if you, in the heat of the moment, lost the wrapper? I think there should be some kind of indication bump on the applicator itself, perhaps the mold ejector holes on the device are good enough? Also the applicator device naturally stops getting the smell of latex on your hands.
Thanks soony for the link.
