Have Herpes? Pee on Your Phone to Find Out

Old-fashioned STD tests are too slow and awkward for British youth, so the government's funding a computer chip you pee on and attach to your phone for an instant diagnosis. You don't even have to leave your favorite nightclub bathroom!

The publicly-funded UK Medical Research Council has put $6.5 million into the development effort, which is aimed at curbing herpes, chlamydia and gonorrhea by eliminating, in some cases, the need to visit a doctor or clinic. The tests will supposedly cost less than $2 and be sold in those little condom vending machines. And while there's no word yet on branding, Matt Drudge has already put in a suggestion of sorts: "URINE LUCK."
