Sports Bra Can Detect Early Breast Cancer Signs

Filed under: Fashion SmashionEtc.

THIS is what technology was made for!

First Warning Systems has developed a sports bra with sensors that can detect tumors in the breast six years before imaging, seven years before a mammogram, and eight years before a standard breast exam.

Wow. That's HUGE!

The bra has a 90% and higher success rate, meaning it’s pretty damn accurate!

It will be launched in Europe in 2013, and with FDA approval will be available in the US by 2014.

The initial investment is expected to be less than $1,000, which isn’t pocket change, but you can’t put a price on health!

Ch-ch-check out the video (below) to learn more about how this AH-Mayzing boulder holder works!

Marks & Spencer Unveils The World's Most Sustainable Suit!

marks-spencer-worlds-most-sustainable-suit.jpg

Being green is about to get a whole lot easier!

This fall British retailer Marks & Spencer will release what they're calling the most sustainable suit IN THE WORLD!

The greenest suit to ever grace God's green earth is made from organic wool and lined with material made from recycled plastic bottles.

The suit pockets, waistband, and all labels were created using recycled polyester and the buttons are all reclaimed.

Impressive.

The sustainable suits will set you back $550, which is a great price considering all the hard work it takes to piece together. However, only 500 suits have been produced, which means they are ecologically exclusive!

But don't worry! If you can't get your hands on this one when it hits stores and online in September, M&S plans to release a variety of sustainable clothes throughout the year.

Thoughts?!?

Finding the perfect pair of jeans can be a hassle, but thanks to new technology there's now a machine that does the leg work for you.

All you gotta do is step into a Bodymetrics pod to have your body scanned and presto! It recommends jeans by brand and body type!

The machine used Microsoft Kinect technology and classifies body in gems: "Emerald" for slim shapes, "Ruby" for curvy shapes and "Sapphire" for those in the middles.

Only three sizes,? That could raise a few eyebrows!

The pod is up and running in the UK and will receive a test stateside at Bloomingdale's before branching out to over 100 stores.

Would you let a machine tell U what jeans to get???
