Submission + - Medical 'Tricorder' Scanadu Scout Raises Over $1M ( 1

kkleiner writes: A Star Trek-like medical 'tricorder' device has already raised $1.3M through crowdfunding with nearly two weeks left in the campaign. The device, called the Scout from startup Scanadu, measures key respiratory and cardiac vital signs, including an electrocardiogram, by simply holding the sensor to a person's forehead for 10 seconds and data are tracked and analyzed via a smartphone. The startup has also revealed plans to expand the integrated app to be able to perform urine analysis using a disposable paddle that connects to the phone.
