Ever thought of getting a health check but worried about having to drop your pants?
Meet the Testimatic – “the world’s first auto ball checker”.
Testicular cancer is the most common cancer affecting New Zealand men aged between 15-39 and is one of the most treatable cancers if detected early.
How does it work? Just step up to the booth, pull the curtain around you and drop your trousers
As BBC News reports “What then happens is not some fancy high tech screening process – instead, there’s a good old urologist sitting in the booth who – through a hole – will have a little feel of your balls.”
Testicular cancer is the number one cancer in young men in the West so the booth was unveiled at New Zealand’s Big Boys Toys expo, an exhibition catering to all things men stereotypically are supposed to be into.
e.g. cars, gadgets and action sports
The branded stall was fitted with a simple curtain for privacy and a hole big enough for a hand to appear through to check the occupants’ testes.
The story gained interest from media around the globe, catapulting the cause into the limelight.
