More Star Trek Technology Becoming Reality

As if we need even more proof that the technology we first saw in the original Star Trek series is now becoming reality, there this: a hand-held medical scanner.

Can anyone say “medical tricorder”? Sure you can.

It looks like a cross between a flip-top phone and the medical scanner used by Dr McCoy in the TV series Star Trek.

The Vscan is not science fiction but a hand-held ultrasound machine with a scanning wand attached, which has been approved for use in Europe and North America.

It's getting closer all the time.
