Story highlights

Japanese scientist Takao Someya has invented a bionic skin that could allow doctors to detect a tiny tumor deep in a woman's breast by touching her skin

The feather-light e-skin can be wrapped around the human hand like cling film

Someya believes e-skin will become a huge medical diagnostic tool, helping doctors to predict heart attacks in advance
