Sci-Fi Medical Scanners
Scanadu Brings Star Trek to Reality with the Medical Tricorder

Tech startup Scanadu is making life easier for DIY docs with their new Medical Tricorder. The Medical Tricorder is a conceptual device designed to let parents scan their children and themselves to see if the symptoms they’re suffering are life-threatening or not.

The Medical Tricorder is being entered into the Tricorder X-Prize. The Tricorder X-Prize is offering $10 million to whoever can come up with the best Tricorder as judged by a panel of doctors. Scanadu’s entry is one of many, but they seem to have a good shot at a strong showing as they have secured $2 million in investments after only being around for a year. That may not be enough to impress a panel of physicians, but it may mean great things for Scanadu even if they don’t take the top spot.
