Who can invent first tricorder?

Eliza Collins, USA TODAY, says the X Prize Foundation, which pays big prizes to inventors, is offering up to $12.5 million for the first generation tricorder a la Star Trek.

The money is being offered by Qualcomm and Nokia.

The thing does not have to look like Mr Spock's--but it must take vitals and detect 15 diseases. It also must be under 5 pounds.

Leonard Nimoy is onboard--he says he always thought the show projected into future developments.

One company, Nanobiosym, will be entering a nanochip onto which you drip bodily fluids.

I always liked the Transporter, fevently wishing to be beamed anyplace I was not. But that's just me.

  1. I had a Transporter. Expensive little dingy. Also, it was terribly illegal.
