A project from a company called Med Sensation hopes to enable home screenings for breast cancer and more. Dubbed the "Glove Tricorder," is a prototype with sensors that can measure "accelerometers, temperature, force, sound, and vibration." The project grew out of the graduate studies program at Singularity University, and the graduate students behind the idea hope that "quantifying touch" will lead to better healthcare. While the current iteration is designed as an aid for medical students, providing feedback on whether they're pressing too hard when examining patients, for example. The goad is to add yet more sensors, including ultrasound, which could enable lay people to use the gloves to check for cancer, detect heart abnormalities, and more.
