The quest for a honest-to-goodness medical tricorder is underway

Just learned about the tricorder “x prize” competition going on. I don’t know what’s weirder: the common use of the term “x prize®” when “contest” works just fine, or the usage of “tricorder” and related Star Trek imagery when one would think the legal team at Paramount would be dumping a bucket of sand all over that kind of thing.  In any case, I eagerly await the results to see what technology we can marvel at in the near future.
