Screening for breast cancer is a relatively clumsy process of feeling around for lumps. MRI, mammograms and ultrasounds can improve accuracy but they are too expensive to be used during every check-up.
Now, biomolecular engineers Ravi Saraf and Chieu Van Nguyen from the University of Nebraska in the US have devised a new way of detecting the disease. They’ve created an ‘electronic skin’ that could ‘feel’ through tissue and locate small lumps.

A new robotic ‘smart suit’ has been developed to give anyone from soldiers and firefighters to hiking enthusiasts and the elderly a bit of superhuman strength. It’s lightweight, flexible, and can be worn under clothes.Read more: http://bit.ly/1lZ9865

“You actually don’t really notice that it’s helping you. But as soon as you turn the system off, it makes you instantly feel that your legs are heavy, which shows that your legs have adapted,” engineer Conor Walsh, head of Harvard’s Biodesign Lab, told Jessica Leber at FastCompany.
Not only could this suit be used to enhance the movements of soldiers and firefighters, making them faster, more agile, and better able to transport heavy equipment, but it could also be worn by stroke victims to make the slow and painful recovery process easier, and the elderly, to protect them from life-threatening falls and injuries. But don’t worry about your grandma looking like a cyborg - the exoskeleton has been designed to be so lightweight and flexible, it can be worn under clothing.
