FTA-"and it costs about US$10. "

However, once the for profit hospitals get their hands on it, it will be a nice $10,000 addition to your bill.

That's fricking awesome.  I imagine it could scan for most STDs.  Imagine you hook up with a hottie at the bar.  You each have a vchip...prick of the finger...and then when all results are clear, you get busy.

It would be the beginning of the 2nd Sexual Revolution.

Maybe the techs could use the new free time to tackle the years-long backlog of unprocessed rape kits and DNA evidence in storage at many police stations.

dopekitty74: This is a wonderful feat of engineering but how many lab techs will eventually be put out of work? We keep making things so people don't need to work so hard to results, and then wonder why the unemployment rates keep climbing higher and higher. And those people likely won't even get a job MAKING the v-chips because they'll be outsourced to china like everything else..


1) They don't make buggy whips any more, either.

2) The U.S. is still the largest manufacturing nation in the world

You're right. We should continue to beat the blood samples with rocks to figure out what's in them.

People have been saying that sort of thing since the dawn of the industrial revolution. The printing press put people out of work too, but I hope we can all agree it was the right way to go, in hindsight? Why should we treat the labor-saving technologies of today any differently.

It will take twenty years to get the OK for hospitals to use this

Oh, sorry peasants. I just bought the exclusive rights to this test. It will now cost you $28,000.

I'm pretty sure you can identify the thing by the orange rocky exterior, and the tendency to shout 'ITS CLOBBERIN' TIME!"

We would have also accepted "Cylon", unless we're still pissed at the ending.
