According to this article from the BBC and several others like it, the Qualcomm Foundation is sponsoring a challenge to create a real-life equivalent to the medical Tricorder from Star Trek.

A $10 million prize is on offer to anyone who can create the device, which is required to be able to diagnose a set of fifteen diseases.

More information is available here, at QualcommTricorderXPrize.org, just in case anyone's interested. :p

Good luck to anyone who's capable!
Man! I hope someone does it... First foot through the door so to speak. ^_^

EDIT: How about that - they used an image of my phone on the screen 'Science fiction reality in the palm of your hand'.
