First Warnings System has developed a high-tech bra that relies on sensors "to detect unusual heat patterns in breast tissue" and identify abnormalities early, said Lara Piras at PSFK.com. The device, known as a Circadian Biometric Recorder, "is applied via a bra insert" and uses the heat-reading sensors to gather and record changes in cell activity, which it then transmits to a computer for analysis. The company hopes to roll out the bra in Europe by 2015 and is awaiting approval from the FDA.
