    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.

    Scientists are lazy liars. Education is for snobs. Don't believe what you read unless it's the Bible. Believe in God.

    How many more posts are we going to see that start "scientists have developed" when they haven't developed a freaking thing? It wouldn't be so bad if the left hadn't developed a propaganda technique that pretends that taxpayer funded grants produce anything.

    No, Jim, Whitey knows nothing at all about any scientific or legal concept that relates to science.

    Are you being sarcastic?

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

    Star Trek Tricorder Moves Closer to Reality
    January 22, 2018 — Assessing someone's medical status was easy on the TV series, Star Trek. Dr. McCoy just waved his tricorder over the patient, and any broken bones, concussions or internal bleeding were instantly revealed.
