This type of ingenuity would send MacGyver running for the Wal-Mart. Africa has been pushing for a wider use of condoms, but it seems that this teen has found another use for the love glove besides its intended purpose.

The video shows the teen blowing up the condom to act as a bladder. He then adds other materials around the inflated condom to allow for the "ball" to be used by children without breaking.

Implications - Consumers in modern society look to make the most uses out of their products. Designs that feature a multitasking element appeal to shoppers who want to save resources. Companies could develop more ways to use one item in order to attract more consumers.
