In strange boob news you can use, two new stories emerge on the breast front: a surgically implanted bra and an effort to regrow breast tissue. Israeli researchers are working on Cup&Up, a bra that’s inserted into the body. The Minimally Invasive Mastopexy is supposedly less intrusive than a typical breast augmentation. Adi Cohen, the man behind the “internal bra,” explains: “What we’ve done is build a silicone bra, insert it into the body and attach it to the ribs and to the fascia.” So far, though, they’ve only tested the Cup&Up on … pigs. Meanwhile, in Australia, researchers are working on ways to regrow human breast tissue, which could help cancer survivors. Let the cyborg breast revolution begin. [Gizmodo, Newser]
