First real working tricorder!!!
« poslato: 05.03.2007 22:02:06 »
Hello, all. I'm new to the forum. Sorry, I don't speak serbian but I know this latest development in technology will be of supreme importance to you all.

Apparently, a new engineering tool has been made. For all intents and purposes, it appears to be the first step in what will one day lead to real working tricorders and other sensor technology just like what we see in Star Trek.

Here's a link to the advertisement:

The funny thing is they're naming this new device after another much-loved Star Trek gizmo.

Once again, Star Trek shapes our future!!!

Unfortunately, this thing costs about one year's wages for me. But maybe the price will go down as technology improves.

Wellcome Marklar!  Your marklar is very marklar! (that's Serbian) :)

Man, that looks serious. Even the housing coloration is like TNG era tricorder.

Indeed. We were just talking a few months ago about that. There was this TV show "How techies changed the world!", hosted by William Shatner, about how Star Trek changed the world.

Man... Where you from?

(Look ma, we have someone new to play with!)

All kidding aside - I second our illustrious leaders' words. It's really good to have someone from abroad find us here. Do stick around. :)

As for the tricorder... it's a start, at least. They'll make a new, improved model in no time... that will be lighter... and be smaller... and run Linux... :P
pozdrav,
  Bojan
