The Star Trek tricorder has become a reality, thanks to the hobby project of a cognitive science researcher. Dr. Peter Jansen has developed a handheld mobile computing device that has a number of sophisticated embedded sensors. The device is modeled after the distinctive design of the 24th-century tricorder.

Unlike the Star Trek device that it is modeled after, Jansen's tricorder can't detect spatial anomalies or identify alien biology. If you are hoping to locate Klingon spies, you will still need to carry around a tribble. The device packs quite a bit of functionality, however, considering the limitations of 21st century technology. I can't help but wonder if Jansen is really a time traveler, borrowing Berlinghoff Rasmussen's business model.

Maybe later versions will be able to do the really cool stuff like detecting tachyonic particles

 

Keep On Crunchin!
