Niiiiice one!
We're a pretty schizo species aren't we?
I read all kinds of crap today happening around the world. And then I read about someone making a freaking Tricorder...
All in all, we might still have a chance guys.
We just have to be a little more consistent.

S&F for ya!

Yes i have been waiting for Grove meter but it has not cleared yet here in EU. And inhaled insulin as you mentioned some type 2 have been tested and its not suitable for type 1 when your pancreat doesn´t make any insulin at all.. too risky.

Beam me up Scottie!

On a serious note, this is very interesting OP. The wonders of technology never cease to amaze me and the potential is beyond comprehension.

Another miracle of modern science.

This is going revolutionize the EMS field. Working remote sites in EMS, and not having to send someone to town for labs to check for flu, strep, etc will be a very nice addition to the bag'o' tools to use in the field. This will also eliminate non urgent medivacs, as well as cost of travel, emergency room visits, and lab fees as well... This will be a great tool.

So, I was watching the commercial for the "Scanadu" device on their website...

Scanadu

and I heard the man in the commercial say,

"Instead of hearing about a viral outbreak on the news, imagine if you got an alert that was tailored to your family's needs."

All I could think about was a massive zombie virus outbreak, or something equally disturbing.

I thought it was quite...interesting...

SCOUT will not be disposable, though. The unit is a tiny hardware device that reads your vital health information on contact. You simply place it on the left temple and, in less than ten seconds, it will read your pulse transit time, heart rate, electrical heart activity, temperature, heart rate variability and blood oxygenation. Then it sends this information to an app on your iPhone or Android phone, which displays it for you. You can even store your vitals for tracking, which could prove fundamental to many health situations at home.

Watching SCOUT at work was something almost magical, like having one of those giant health monitoring units reduced to a slice of plastic that fits on the palm of your hand. Which, actually, is exactly how it became to be.



I avoided getting one of those damned phones for so long... And now it seems I finally have no choice!

This is *Brilliant*. Definitely going to be grabbing one the moment they are on the market.
As for those ''smart'' phones, reluctancex10

Lol.. the tech in star trek is pretty primitive by today's standards..


Minus warp drive, teleportation, phasers, etc.


All controlled by buttons and knobs..


Buttons and knobs have more to do with user interface preference than how advanced the tech of the time is. For instance as a consumer I would rather have a knob to control volume on a audio system than voice recognition. I would choose a key with buttons to unlock my car over thumb print scanning. Not everyone would, but that's my point


I would love love love a spaceship with knobs and buttons

Well no Xprize winner but I guess it's a start,to win the 10 mill the device needs to take critical measurements as well as diagnose 15 separate diseases.

No thank you... it sends the info to your iphone or android device and then most likely out to every info pimp on the planet.

"Oh so sorry Mr Evans we won't be able to give you a mortgage due to the fact that your most recent med scans indicate that you may have cancer."

No thank you. Wake up people!

When as a race we do away with greed and selfishness I will be on board for all of this cool stuff. Until then it's buyer beware.

Obviously, the good doctor left his tricorder lying around somewhere. Now we are in for it.
But seriously............
Another poster indicated his concern that information about your health could be stolen and used against you.
This is possible and IMHO should be seriously considered.
Also this could lead to a push for "implants" to facilitate expansion of the efficacy of the device. For your own good, ya know.
Hmmmmmm.........
Resistance is futile........

This is really nothing new, as all the things this "Tricorder" does can be done cheaply with products easily found online. They just combined them into an awkward looking block. Until it can AT LEAST also do blood glucose, cholesterol, blood pressure, and run some basic lab work, it will not be anything close to a tricorder.

The defense industry and deep black world projects already have true tricorders, although the biggest difference is that the tricorders in the black world interface with a small network of implanted sensors that will relay vital, incredibly detailed, data to the "tricorder" device. It can even interface with a small ultra-thin pager like device to constantly monitor one's system for any pathogens and to alert individuals on changes in their health. I was made known of this technology about a decade ago, so I estimate we will start seeing early versions of that in another 5 to 10 years, transition from medical to home settings.

I'm guessing this device comes with a free RFID implant?

I don't know if you've gotten my pm, but I'd be very interested in hearing more about this device and anything else you would like to share regarding the deep black world.

What about the food replicator? NOW THAT WOULD BE NEWS
