Mary Lou Jepsen left behind her successful career in the tech
world — which included top executive roles at Facebook, Google,
and Intel — to found Openwater, a startup focused on
creating a wearable device that Jepsen says will provide
MRI-resolution imaging

Jepsen gave a jaw-dropping talk at TED in April, complete with
raw chicken, buckets of blood, and lasers. On a darkened stage,
Jepsen demonstrated how bodies are translucent to red light, and

Jepsen is an inventor on over 200 patents, and has been recognized on

she thinks the technology will transform the healthcare industry
