I am amazed at how quickly the devices that my Son, Andrew, and I used to see (10-25 years ago), which were used by the Crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise, in the original “StarTrek” TV Show, are now coming into actual usage. But, as I have written before, StarTrek is actually based on Science, and they were far-sighted. See the recent Post, “When will the ‘Transporter’ be availabe?”, https://thetruthoncommonsense.com/2013/05/23/when-will-the-transporter-be-available/.
Dr. Leanoard McCoy (“Bones”), was the Ship’s Physician and he used a “tricorder”, a mobile device roughly the size of an iPhone, to check a patient’s vital signs. The Biozoom Biofeedback Scanner is currently being used by some doctors in hospital settings, and will eventually be available to anyone–doctors and patients.
Biozoom, Inc. is even developing a nansecond version of the scanner, as noted in the linked article, from Global Financial Insight, http://www.gfiz.com/innovative-technology-company-invents-real-star-trek-medical-scanner-that-diagnoses-patient-health-in-seconds/. This Blog Post is intended to inform and not necessarily to recommend a particular investment.
NOTE: Thanks to Andrew for the Idea for this Post–a long, long time ago.
