Microsoft tech-evangelist and renowned philanthropist Bill Gates might not be as provocatively interesting as old business frenemy Steve Jobs but he’s always been more generous. He was even chosen as one of Businessweek‘s most generous people.
This time around, it’s not one of the many charities Gates and his wife are interested in contributing to that we’re here to talk about.
No, in fact, they’re looking to lubricate an innovative condom designer with a $100,000 grant if they can “reinvent the condom.”
What exactly does Gates want from the “next generation of condom?”
Obviously something that is incredibly reliable against STDs and unwanted pregnancy, something that feels au natural, something accessible and affordable, and something that digitally measures pleasure like a heart rate/calorie tracker for the naughty bits?
Probably not that last one. But here’s hoping. It would be fun to use for emotional blackmail.
