BBC : A laser device for less painful injections has been developed by South Korean scientists.
Mind is blown.
Well its official, Hypo-sprays have arrived.
Trekkies unite. haha This is so cool!!
we all read know that nano tech can do that
MMMMM Heroin injections just got so less painful.
Sort of like Stickland Propane's tagline. Taste the meat, not the heat. Uhhhh, except with heroin.
Racer-X thought that was funny? That boy ain't right.
Does this mean you can't get an infectious blood born pathogen from sharing the "needle?"
Correct, since it won't be making contact with your skin.
I'm not so sure. Jet injectors have been around for a long time, used in mass inoculation drives in 3rd world countries and they found that diseases can spread by using it. It was conclusive to the point that WHO no longer recommends their use. Apparently even though the width required is small, diseases like hepatitis can get through. It's a fun idea, but this is firstly nothing new and I believe has no new means of dealing with contamination.
People who have a phobia of injections will be so relieved to find this out XD
That's all kinds of encouraging news. I just had a needle in my hand a few weeks ago for a cortozone injection and it hurt like a bastard. The reduction in potential for blood born disease is a huge plus.
bet it causes all kinds of side effects.
