An enthusiastic YouTuber recreated the current tricorder from the Star Trek series
Humanity learned about the existence of the tricorder from the cult science fiction television series Star Trek. According to its creators, it is an individual multifunctional compact device for assessing the environment – the technical characteristics of various machines and the physiological parameters of living beings.
The rapid development of modern technologies makes it possible to implement engineering solutions, which previously could only be read in science fiction novels. So, a few years ago, a group of researchers from the University of Glasgow created a medical version of the tricorder. Later, an attempt to reproduce this Hollywood gadget was made by a YouTube user and at the same time an amateur designer of electronic devices under the nickname Mangy_Dog.
In a 40-minute, three-part mini-series on YouTube, he spoke in detail about his work on the device. It took two years to create a tricorder, a lot of effort and money.
As a result, as in the series, a clamshell gadget with activated screens and indicators turned out. By clicking on the corresponding buttons on the control panel, you can turn on the terrain scanning mode or a medical scanner, after which various animation options invented by the author will appear on the screens.
And even if in this case we are not talking about real dimensions, we must admit that we have before us a very ingenious creation of talent and human hands.
