I saw this posted Yesterday and thought it really encapsulated the power of the internet and how it could really be harnessed to level the barriers to entry to a whole host of industries. This video is of 15 year old Jack Andraka a young man who admits he didn’t even know what a pancreas was has created a new cost-effective way to detect pancreatic cancer at the early stages.

n the end, Andraka has created a paper censor that costs 3 cents — about 26,000 times less expensive than the current pancreatic test. The test takes five minutes. And it appears to have close to 100% accuracy, potentially allowing pancreatic cancer to be detected in its early stages, when a person has a much better prognosis. This accomplishment not only made Andraka the winner of the Intel International Science Fair – it has the potential to save many lives.
