Julian Rios Cantu, an 18-year-old engineering student from Mexico, took home the top prize at the Global Student Entrepreneur Awards this past weekend after presenting a bra he invented to help with the early detection of breast cancer, Fox News reported

The bra is equipped with 200 biosensors that keep track of the surface of the breast, its temperature, its shape and its weight. 

According to Rios Cantu, the bra is designed primarily for women who are predisposed to the illness. 

"EVA is a network of biosensors that covers the woman’s breast, takes the temperature data, analyzes them, and sends the information to an application or any computer,” Rios Cantu said to Infobae.

Rios Cantu took home $20,000 for winning the top prize, defeating 13 other student entrepreneurs from around the world. 

Rios Cantu's company is very active on social media.
