That's a breast on a chip. Why? Because though it looks like a slide, it actually accurately mimics the branching mammary duct system of a breast, where most breast cancers begin. That's key for cancer research since scientists can now test new approaches for treatment, like magnetic nanoparticles. It sounds insane:
Some technologies have a definitive impact in the progress of civilization that will leave a mark in Humanity forever. This utterly ridiculous contraption not one of them.
The gals at Jezebel have stumbled onto the party trick of the decade: How to detect breast implants using only a flashlight. While it may not exactly be an entirely scientific method, it most definitely looks fun.

An breast cancer organization in Hong Kong is placing these mousepads in internet cafes all over the city to remind people to examine themselves regularly. Great idea, but a little risque for the US.
