Star Trek Needle-less Hypospray Now a Reality!
This is really cool..."Lorentz Force Actuator" = magnetic driven piston! Could mean a big thing for diabetics.

ScienceMIT Researchers Create Star Trek-Style Needleless Injections

A high-speed pressure jet administers medicine through the skin

By Melissa Locker

At last, Trekkies and Trypanophobes have something in common. Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have pulled a page from Star Trek‘s book and have developed a technique for giving shots without a needle, much like the injections Dr. McCoy delivered on the starship Enterprise.

MIT scientists, led by Professor Ian Hunter, have figured out a way to inject medicine using a high-pressure jet to deliver specific amounts of medicine to variable depths beneath the skin, reports the Daily Mail. It’s a step up from existing needleless transdermal devices, such as nicotine patches, which are limited to medicinal doses tiny enough to be delivered via the skin’s pores. This means that the new needleless injections can be used on individuals of all ages and with a variety of doses and medications.

very interesting video. Explains drugs can be delivered as a liquid or powder. It can also preset for varied injection speeds, fast for breaching tissue layers and then slowed for drug dispersion, something that needles cannot do today.

Ok, this is very cool!


"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed... If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... Let them take arms... What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787

They had this back in the late 60's! I remember getting inoculated with one back then.
