My physician uses a Palm Pilot type device specifically to look up medication doses and drug interactions. He knows the fellow who wrote the program, who had the device that was used in sick bay in mind when he wrote it. The telemetry unit I wore in the hospital last week is another take off on the same idea. Portable insulin pumps that constantly measure your glucose levels and deliver insulin accordingly are another. Walkie-talkies and cell phones, microwave ovens, weighted and magnetic boots, transponders that translate (cell phone apps) and find your companions (GPS), officers of all genders and varying races...this list goes on. I am still waiting for the teleportation; that would be my dream! Then again, it would also be nice to come home at the end of the day and tell the food production unit on the wall exactly what I want for dinner, and a few minutes later it is delivered.
