    Hi all,

    I couldn't resist posting this one. I grew up on Trek, after all I am a child of the '60's. Make sure you go to the link for the entire article.

    Take care, (or should I say Live Long & Prosper), LOL)

    'Trek' tricorder could win $10 million

    The development of a "Star Trek" tricorder-style medical device, similar to this NASA mockup, may be worth a $10 million prize.

    Cosmic Log - 'Trek' tricorder could win $10 million

    A real-life diagnostic device that does something akin to what the tricorder did on "Star Trek" just might earn its developers $10 million prize. And yes, the proposed competition is actually being called the Tricorder X Prize. It's just one more example of life imitating "Trek." In the words of Mr. Spock: Fascinating!

    The objective of the project, currently being explored by the X Prize Foundation and Qualcomm, is not just to create one more cool gadget for "Trek" fans ... although the idea of a hand-held, automated medical diagnostic device is pretty cool. The objective is to extend the reach of health information and services to billions more people in the world.
