“iPhone doc will detect cancer, diabetes – boffins”

I never thought that I’d live to see a working Star Trek-esque medical tricorder, but it seems that I might… at least a poor-man’s version of one, that requires placing a sample on or in the device. Even better, the smartphones we’re toting around today might already have all the hardware needed, if I’m reading that right.

(Of course, I’ll believe it when I see it — too many of these pie-in-the-sky tech advances get mentioned once or twice, then vanish, never to be seen again. But it’s exciting to think that it might actually work.)
