A group of British teens (13 and 14 yr. olds, no less), invent a condom that changes color when exposed to STDs. They even won a nationwide contest for their invention. For more on this, read the links.

What are your reactions and thoughts?

Great idea. Minor issues are that it wouldn't detect all STIs and might be ambiguous about which partner had the STI. Specificity and sensitivity are key to methods for detecting pathogens. A skim read of one of the articles didn't indicate values for these but it is a good idea anyhow, assuming it can be done cheaply.
Please avoid quoting all of large posts - it needlessly means we have to scroll through them to navigate a thread.

That's really cool and amazing news. Yesterday, while browsing internet I came across a shocking discovery. I was shocked to knew that top female celebrities like Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Alba, Rihanna, Paris Hilton and many more have caught genital herpes allegedly from their boyfriends. Celebrities with herpes seems like a rumour but I found this news almost every mainstream media site and If this is not true, why none of these celebrities has denied it. Here is an article about 28 celebrities that're known to be suffering from this incurable disease:

This is revolutionary. Now before we get Superherpes, the Supercondom will tell us to p*ss off

That would depend on how the condoms are designed. I don't think they would've won such a high-profile award if potential issues like that hadn't been addressed already, though.

My concern is: will it detect if the wearer has STD's or their sexual partner? That might cause confusion.

These might be better alternatives:
In my opinion, people ought to invent a giant Q-tip that detects STD's. Color will change based on the STD with the original color of the Q-tip being safe/neutral. Both partners will thoroughly swap their own genitals(with one end of the Q-tip) and extract bodily fluids which will be placed on the other end. They will test again, but this time, on each other since a person might try to cover up the truth of being infected and do a poor job swabbing and extracting bodily fluid. This will be done before sexual intercourse. It can also be done after intercourse.

Pregnancy test strips which detect various STD's.
