Want a REAL Tricorder?

Ok, so it’s a bit more clunky than even TOS era tricorders, but maybe they’ll have this one scaled down a bit in 300 years: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2007/02/070227104038.htm

Of course it’s not the first attempt to make a real Tricorder. A Canadian company made the TR-107, which offered even more Tricordery features, such as an EMF Meter, Light Meter, Weather Station, Color Analyzer, and just for good measure a “Stardate” clock/calendar function. I seem to recall reading somewhere, however, that the TR-107 is no longer in production - maybe you can find one in a dealer’s room at a Con though.
