Meet Scanadu Scout, the world’s first medical tricorder

We are officially living in the future. A medical tricorder is now being developed by a startup team of MDs, data scientists, mathematicians, coders, molecular biologists, mechanical, electrical engineers and biophysicists based in NASA Research Park, Moffett Field. The sensor-packed scanner is designed to read your vital signs in a fuss-free way; leave it on your forehead for 10 seconds and your smartphone will get the deets next via wifi.

It is still in prototype mode — which is why the team have turned to IndieGoGo to get supporters to come aboard to help the device so it can apply for FDA’s approval as an over-the-counter consumer-grade diagnostic tool.
