The OraQuick Home HIV Test gadget uses saliva in detecting the presence of antibodies that indicate the presence of HIV in the human body (Best inventions of the year 2012, 2013). It helps individuals avoid visits to the doctor. It captured my attention because I never associated HIV with saliva. This invention will contribute to reducing the number of HIV-related deaths since individuals will know about their status early enough to start medication (Oraquick, 2014). It does not affect me personally, but I believe it can help my close friends and relatives or me in the future. I think this invention has the potential for improvement because the 20-minute wait for the results is too long. The inventors or other technologists can work on reducing the time people have to wait for the results.
