The Quallcomm XPrize Tricorder challenge has given humanity a powerful tool to improve a patients ability to diagnose their medical condition.  Inspired by the tricorder from Star Trek, the ultimate winner of the challenge was a machine called DxtER from the New Frontiers Medical Devices group.

The competition's advisor is Dr. Erik Viirre. Doctor Viirre is a MD PhD who specializes in neuro science, surgery and cognitive studies. His blend of medicine, and experience in the start-up world makes him the right mentor to over see the technical aspects of the competing tricorders.

The challenge was sponsored by the Qualcomm Foundation who is lead by Paul Jacobs. Their mission, among other things, is to provide health regardless of where a person lives. The combination of communication, portability and access make the tricorder a perfect answer to the foundation's goals.

Give Guest host Jon Leon Guerrero, of the Break It Down Show and Pete A Turner a listen as they pop into the XPRIZE world with Dr. Viirre.
