Are You Ready To Sync Your Vagina With Your Smartphone?
Currently fundraising on Kickstarter, Looncup would be the world's first bluetooth menstrual cup. Go go gadget vagina!
Loon Lab, Inc wants to take technology where it's never gone before. Right up your cooter.
That's right! They want you to install Bluetooth in your pink to get a better handle on what your monthly menses is saying about your overall health.
As of Tuesday morning the project had raised $23,134 of its $50,000 goal with 23 days to go.
Because gosh, ladies, remembering to change that sanitary product is such a hassle right? I don't know about you, but I can't tell you how many times this has happened to me:
BuzzFeed Life showed Looncup's Kickstarter video to a couple of OB/GYNs to see what they thought of the period industry's latest technological advancement.
Dr. Jennifer Gunter, a California-based OB/GYN thought she might be being punk'd.
Mary Jane Minkin, an OB/GYN at Yale was equally skeptical of the need to track your period so closely.
"If someone is filling up a pad or a tampon every hour, I need to know about it," Minkin told Buzzfeed Life, "but I don't know how helpful this technology will be. It is true that quantification of menstrual flow isn't terribly accurate — but other than very heavy flow — which folks know about from filling up tampons or pads, I don't know how much helpful information this conveys."
