Robot medicine

A sign of the times. Robots in China scanning children for illness on their way into school. This kind of thing will inevitably grow, and we will have cheap mechanisms for diagnosing illness everywhere. Imagine a smart phone that scans you while you hold it to your ear to chat.

Future developments will be for more sophisticated methods, like scent analysis of your breath, as well as the obvious temperature and blood pressure measurements. Also, such developments lower cost. The auto-doc of the future may cost very little, but may save lives by catching illness early.
