The top prize at the Global Student Entrepreneur Awards (GSEA) this year was given to an 18-year-old student from Mexico for his creation. Julian Rios Cantu beat out 13 other students from around the world, and took home a 20-thousand dollar prize, for a bra he created called EVA. EVA is an intelligent bra that can help in the early detection of breast cancer. While watching his mother repeatedly fight cancer until finally she had both breasts removed, Julian became inspired to do something. His revolutionary new bra has around 200 biosensors that map the surface of the breast and monitor its temperature, shape and weight. The best part is that you only have to wear it for one hour a week.
The biosensors in the bra map the surface of the breast and can determine thermal conductivity by specific zones. More blood flow in an area would create more heat for the sensors to pick up. This would indicate that those blood vessels are “feeding” something — usually some type of cancer.
