UR Professor Jannick Rolland has come up with an interesting way to scan whatever is on your skin using several existing technologies in a brand new way.
Part of it involves image-compositing similar to those focus-less cameras that take several pictures from different viewpoints and then stitch them all together.
It may not immediately, -or soon-, replace the eyes of a trained professional, or a big lab and dedicated imaging techs, but it promises a great addition to the toolkit already in use.
Star Trek, here we come!
-now if Dr. Jannick could just get Dr. Grordbort to package the whole thing in a cool retro-futuristic medical raygun aether oscillator…
… -you know, -without it blasting your face off and all…
Check out all the further specs and details at the links below.
