Launched in 2012, the global competition challenged teams to develop a consumer-focused, mobile integrated diagnostic device based on the medical Tricorder from the “Star Trek” universe. The winning team developed an affordable device that can diagnose and interpret a defined set of 13 health conditions to various degrees, while continuously monitoring five vital health metrics.
The post-competition initiatives will see facilitated testing and R&D for continued Tricorder device development, including FDA support; securing relationships in retail so that, upon regulatory approvals, the device will be given international distribution; creating an feature-length documentary; an additional commitment by The Roddenberry Foundation to contribute $1.6 million toward the adaptation of the team’s Tricorder
