    THE "QUALCOMM TRICORDER X PRIZE" CHALLEGES MEDICAL SCIENCE TO DEVELOP A STAR TREK-LIKE MEDICAL TRICORDER WITH A $10 MILLION PRIZE - PBT Consulting

    Somebody will eventually do this, especially given the development of devices that can produce T-Waves.

    Are you being sarcastic?

    I dont pick up on that sort of thing very well.

    All I know is that his comment had no meaningful content.
