CES 2013: The Scanadu Scout, like a tricorder for your health

1:49 /

In just 10 seconds against your temple, the Scanadu Scout can note your temperature, heart rate, and even blood oxygenation.

Hi guys, this is Brian Bennett at CNET.com, and we're at CES 2013. And we're taking a first look at the Scanadu Scout. Now do remember one of these things? It's a Star Trek tricorder. Now this isn't the real device, but this Scanadu Scout is essentially, supposed to be a medical tricorder, especially a mobile thermometer that's super high tech and will replace your bold, you know, analog thermometer at home. You just stick it right here on your temple, wait 10 seconds, and after that you basically get readings for all sorts of health stats. So, you get not only you temperature, but you also get your blood flow, blood oxygen level, your heart rate, and once you get all this data you can send it to your mobile device, that would either an android handset, your iPhone, or a Windows phone -- smartphone. So basically, what you do with this, you can take a look at this data, you can see it online, you can track it over time, basically gives a whole recording of your health that you can take to your doctor to prove, you know, maybe you feel fine or something like that, but it's also -- basically something that you can use to maybe even measure the kids temperature if you have no idea if they're sick or not, and you don't have to, you know, use any sort of invasive methods. So, all in all this is a pretty interesting product. As far as availability is concerned, it's still undergoing FDA review, but we're told it'll probably cost 150, and hopefully be available by the -- maybe the end of the third quarter or fourth quarter this year. I'm Brian Bennett and this has been a first look at the Scanadu Scout.
