"A Canadian developer, Dr. Peter Jansen, has been working on
making tricorders. Yes, tricorders, as in the fictional devices
that Star Trek writers used as convenient foils for moving plots
forward for years.
"Dr. Jansen has actually already built two tricorders, the
Science Tricorder Mark 1 and Mark 2, and he has more coming. He
abandoned the Mark 3, but the Mark 4 has been fabbed and is
currently undergoing software development."
