Basil Leaf Technologies founded by Dr. Basil Harris and his brother George won the top QUALCOMM Tricorder XPrize Competition. Dr. Harris and his team built a functioning tricorder, YES! like the one from Star Trek this one tests for 34 different medical criteria. The information Dr. Harris sought was created through his own desires for knowledge as an ER doctor. The Tricorder is real! We're excited to share the story of Dexter (the tricorders name).
As a follow up to our conversation last week with John Coulson, serial inventor and founder of SIDOG, we interviewed TJ Wright, founder of Mi Amore the first official licensee of SIDOG’s technology platform.
TJ Wright has a fascinating story himself. For those of you not familiar with the name, TJ is a former Cincinnati Bengals cornerback who played professionally for many years until an injury forced him to move to arena football and eventually retire from the game altogether. While TJ figured out his next steps, he pursued his creative passions with a vengeance, which included forming a rap / rock back called Orian’s belt, pursuing a design degree through an art institute, designing his own merchandise such as accessories, wardrobe and shoes.
