Get ready for AARP tech explorer George Takei to be everywhere at once this summer, or at least it may seem that way. This week, for example, he visited The Daily Show's Jon Stewart to talk about a new documentary: To Be Takei: A Star's Trek for Life, Liberty and Love, opening in August after playing the film festival circuit. Not only that, Takei continues to use his social media clout to promote Allegiance, a Broadway-bound musical about the Japanese American experience in World War II. He starred in the show during its successful tryout in San Diego.
If you're a fan of the original Star Trek TV series and its myriad spin-offs, you may remember the medical tricorder - a futuristic gadget with special handheld sensors that the Enterprise's intrepid crew used to check the vital signs of an injured or sick person.
