Star Trek Tricorder
The handheld medical device used in the popular Star Trek Enterprise can soon be realized. With Qualcomm having started a race to see if anyone can create a winning tricorder (which weighs less than 5 pounds and fits in a palm!), The healthcare professional could benefit from this wonderful innovation. With the ability to diagnose different conditions (from anemia, diabetes, pneumonia, insomnia and chronic diseases among others) and monitor important symptoms (such as blood pressure, heart rate, temperature and respiratory rate) of patients in their homes' comfort, without the need to visit your doctor.
Ender's Game Robotic Medical Assistant
While Ender's Game contained a surgical procedure that performs brain surgery, robotic trainers help to safely lift drugs, reduce accidents at work accidents, thereby improving medical retention and satisfaction as well as patient satisfaction. These assistants are very mobile, can move in any direction, and work seamlessly in a closed space. They can either work side by side with a trained nurse with the ability to perform simple tasks such as monitoring important symptoms or delivering drugs. Some nurse holders are a link for doctors to cross-range distances to communicate with patients, and can be supervised by a nurse located in the distance, enabling remote clinician to monitor, diagnose and treat patients in Real Time
Mission Impossible Augmented Reality Contact Lenses
Google Glass can soon become a passé, where contact lenses are advertised. If you have ever dreamed of a nonsense float in front of you and information displayed in your eyes (and not on the screen), your dream could be realized soon – as shown in Mission Impossible. With a futuristic vision, device manufacturers are working to develop lenses that want to read the light from a projector that has been made for glasses. These small-screen, camera, RF antenna and sensor lenses will detect eye movement and allow patients to control certain inputs just by blinking. These specialized lenses will help users to focus on both nearby and distant objects. What's more, advanced AR lenses also measure tear blood sugar and will change treatment and treatment of diabetes.
Next Black Smart Garment
Move on Smart wearables where smart clothes will be quickly popular. Documentary film The Next Black showcased cladding (fibretronics) with a microchip implanted in them. From socks and sleeves, to shirts and shorts – these clad garments have the ability to respond to body temperature, monitor heart rate, monitor emissions and other living conditions (or even the mood of a user) and can be used in a new way – without need to catch a phone or click on a screen. By disconnecting the touchscreen from the digital device, clever lining is composed of sensors that enable simple monitoring and send capture data through wireless signals on the mobile device.
Fifth Element 3D Bio Printer
When producers of the fifth episode showed 3D biography, they knew little that the idea would ever come true! Imagine how innovations technology has now achieved – while 3D printing is commonly used to create objects, technology is now new in the field of cure. 3D bioprints are used to build human tissue (and even organs), for the purpose of research as well as transplantation. Using computer-generated tomography and MRI, bioprintera layer and restore cells and tissues that are then fed with oxygen and nutrients to keep them alive.
