Invent the medical tricorder win $10,000,000

GeneralSecretary writes "Ever watch Star Trek and say "Hey, I could build that", well now's your chance. Qualcomm and the X PRIZE Foundation have teamed together to offer ten million US dollars to whomever can invent "a mobile solution that can diagnose patients better than or equal to a panel of board certified physicians", the Tricorder X Prize. Hopefully the Tricorder will join the cell phone, MRI, and tablet computer in the list of Star Trek devices that are now part of our lives."
