"Man boobs" have been joked about in movies, TV shows and other media outlets; but they can appear as a result of a serious condition called gynecomastia which causes the mammary glands to grow abnormally large in some males. This can be embarrassing for men, particularly when they have to shop in women's lingerie stores to find a little bit of support. That's why bras for men have been introduced and there are now more options than ever before for men with this condition.
With recent advances in understanding the science behind chameleons' color changes, researchers have been able to develop an artificial chameleon-like skin that changes color when deformed. The new material will have a number of exciting applications ranging from camouflage to color-changing sensors to next-generation flexible color displays.
