Wolfgang Grulke The tricorder is coming

I met Walter de Brouwer a year ago at a Madrid Innovation Summit and he is just as infectious as his new technology. Scanadu is one to watch!

Doug Vining Big Mother is watching you

I'm not sure that I want my nurse or doctor to spy on my lifestyle. But I suppose it all depends - if I was frail and vulnerable, perhaps I love to have a smart app keeping tabs on me...

Anton Musgrave Beyond collaboration as we know it lies a new world of discovery

Connecting and engaging as fellow sufferers, patients around the world are sharing personal stories and medical experiences...and maybe radically re-inventing the health care world. Individual Drs, with only very limited patients having similar conditions, cannot compete with the wealth of knowledge, experience, insights and treatments that these collaborative patient networks offer. The potential for new ways of offering affordable and effective healthcare are massive.

Doug Vining Smart healthcare using smartphones and 3D printing

Here's breakthrough technology for detecting cancer that hits all the right buttons. It uses low-tech (smartphone, LED lights and standard well plate) combined with a 3D-printed cabinet and some very smart bio compounds and software. Although the news link is to a site promoting 3D printing, that's actually the least interesting thing about this invention. It's open source, open hardware and could make early cancer detection something that's done in a pharmacy or consulting room. Quite amazing.
