"A $10m (£6.5m) prize is on offer to whoever can create a Star Trek-like medical 'tricorder.' The Qualcomm Tricorder X Prize has challenged researchers to build a tool capable of capturing 'key health metrics and diagnosing a set of 15 diseases.' It needs to be light enough for would-be Dr McCoys to carry -- a maximum weight of 5lb (2.2kg). The prize was launched at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas." (01/12/12)
