Are you a Star Trek fan? I know I am! If you are a fellow Star Trek, did you remember this scene?
That’s Tricorder Mark VII Medical used to scan the well-being of the spaceship crews in the Star Trek The Next Generation.
Have you ever imagined what would it be like when scanning your medical condition can be done using such device? Yes, medical examination will become faster, with convenience.
Lucky us, the future is here: A company called Scanadu will launch to the market the world’s first medical self-examination device that comes close (not that close though – but it’s a start!) to what the Star Trek Medical Tricorder can do:
Getting funded via Indiegogo for the amount of $1.6 million, Scanadu Scout is still in production and in pending approval from the FDA.
I don’t know about you, but this gadget will save people’s life, as it will give you the diagnosis on your 5 vital signs in real time. You will know immediately the condition of your body.
Scanadu Scout won’t beat Star Trek Tricorder Medical today, but it’s a good beginning, don’t you think?
