    Bill Gates now offers a reward for inventions around condoms. <br><br><a href="http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/mar/24/bill-gates-offers-100000-grant-improved-condoms/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/mar/24/bill-gates-offers-100000-grant-improved-condoms/</a><br><br>I don't think that using condoms as rubber bands would fit the challenge, unfortunately <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br><br>But this caught my eye:<br><br><table width="90%" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="0" border="0" align="center">
    <tr><td><span class="genmed"><b>Quote:</b></span></td></tr>
    <tr><td class="quote">that increase ease-of-use for male and female condoms, for example better packaging or designs that are easier to properly apply.<br>
    </td></tr>
    </table>
    <span class="postbody"><br><br>Here is my idea.<br><br>I can make a slingshot crossbow that fires an UNOPENED condom!<br><br>A clear perspex tube can be attached to the muzzle. So the "assistant" can put the muzzle over the, ahem, object of the consumer, and then the condom can be fired. The impact will tear open the package and (hopefully) roll the condom over the... object. <br><br>What do you guys think?<br><br></span>

    Finding a volunteer is the hard part. I think I will use a wooden "simulator" for the video. <br><br>This one will be hilarious. <br>

    I think the rolled up part won´t be heavy enough to unroll itself...but i´m sure you will find a way somehow to do it...and that would be a winner anyway...if your in urge to put it on real quick, what can be better than fireing it on? <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><br><br>Maybe the solution could beto make the tip heavy and fire it into the women...you know? and then go for the dive lol <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cheers.png" alt="cheers" longdesc="28">

    Well, I don't really think it will work. It will be a piece of comedy rather than a serious invention. <br><br>But the logics are unbeatable. It IS a hassle to open these condom bags, with the slimy thing inside. But ripping that plastic bag with your... member would be very painful. Plus, keeping the thing... operable when someone puts a huge wooden gun over it would be... hard. <br><br><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2">
