    Hm... Surprisingly that doesn't look too difficult...

    Wonder what metrics they will end up choosing? Depending on the choice it could be achievable in less than 5 years. The technology is already there for any obvious metric I can think of.

    It will be insanely difficult. The current technology requires entire rooms of equipment. Compacting that down into a handheld device will probably take decades.
