In the original 1960s Star Trek television series, doctors use a medical tricorder, a mobile device that collects vital information about patients and helps diagnose diseases.These tricorders were just a figment of someones imagination and wound up in the Star Trek shows. No one ever thought they would become part of our reality. But that was proven wrong, said James Hoshor, senior mobile strategist and solutions architect, Propelics.
