There Was a Contest...

The James Dyson Award is an international design award that celebrates, encourages and inspires the next generation of design engineers. It's open to design engineering students, and is run by the James Dyson Foundation, James Dyson’s charitable trust, as part of its mission to get young people excited about design engineering.

Rebecca Weiss, an industrial design graduate from the University of Munich, Germany, took the top prize and was given the award for her problem-solving idea.

Weiss invented the COSO, a never-seen-before male birth control device called a "testicle bath." Weiss developed the idea for her master's thesis.

She hopes the award will help her obtain funding to put the COSO through clinical trials.

Why?
  • Condoms and a vasectomy are currently the only two contraceptives for men, while there are 12 tailored to women
  • Although there's ongoing research into a pill for men, there is not one available yet.
  • An alternative to condoms, and no one likes using condoms. Plus, they slip and can break

How it Works

  • The device works by men placing their testicles into a small bowl-like gadget, which is filled with water
  • It emits ultrasound waves to temporarily limit sperm production and mobility for up to two months
  • Weiss says COSO is painless and temporary

Ultrasound Technology
  • Used to reduce pain and speed up healing for deep tissue injuries
  • Was first proposed as a contraceptive in the 1970s, and is thought to work by generating a deep heat in testicular tissue. This alters sperm mobility, which prevents them from being able to fertilize a female egg, and temporarily suppresses the creation of new sperm

Comes in three sizes.

"I'll Buy One Today!"

Nope, not yet. It's not available for resale yet. It's still in the testing phase.

Would you go a GoFundMe to support this?
Sounds interesting. I'd be up for supporting more research on it.
