Doc.ai, Scanadu and GenLife founder Walter de Brouwer was so inspired by the tricorder device in Star Trek that he set out to create one IRL. And that he did. Although not yet released on the market,  his team at Scanadu created the Scanadu Scout which you can hold to your temple and it will give you your health results—everything from blood pressure, temperature, heart rate, and pulse oximetry—in just 10 seconds. I caught up with Walter to discuss his sci-fi esque predictions on the future of health.
